    collage snowmen

    I read Lois Ehlert's book Snowballs one day and then send home a note asking students to bring "good stuff" (her words) the following day. I also provide a wide variety of junk. Students have a great time decorating their snowmen and every one is unique. Sometimes I have had the students name them and then created labels (like a real artist-- Snow Cat by Fred). To make the snowman, I have them tear the edges--no cutting, no drawing, just freehand tearing. We glue that on to blue construction paper, and then have at it.
    I'm planning to read the book the first day back after break, then make the snowmen the next day so I have something to decorate the hall.
    For the district office, maybe you could scan in the cover of the book, so they could see where the students got their inspiration.
