Literacy Week- Door Decorating Contest

We had literacy last week at our school.  One of the activities was to decorate our door using a book that is a classroom favorite.  In the past we have done Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and Dr. Seuss.  I let the kids help me decide which story they liked best.  We were finishing up our snowmen activities and they had fallen in love with the book Snowmen at Night.  I love that book!  We have read it a few times on We Give Books and with the actual paperback book.  So I took to pinterest to find a cute snowman.  I saw a picture of a snowman from a different perspective on this art blog. I decided to turn that into our door decorations!

Here's a picture of our final project:

Here are some of the precious snowmen:

I asked this little boy if he had his small circle and he held this up.  He explained that it wasn't even, so he needed to trim it.  How funny!

Here's one of the snowmen up close:

Next time I do this project I will need to buy the foam sticky tape to give it better dimension.  We used foam dinosaur stickers (only thing I could find in the room), but it didn't seem to work with separating the layers.  I It needed to be a little thicker.  I still think it turned out cute as can be and the kids love it!
