Here’s a free winter writing craft that’s perfect to do on a snowy day or as a way to welcome the season. Hang the completed crafts together in the hallway or on a bulletin board with the title, “Welcome, Winter!” for a beautiful wintry display!
- Construction paper
- Winter writing prompt paper
- Craft templates (optional)
- White paint
- Stick glue
- Crayons, markers or colored pencils
- Complete the winter acrostic prompt and glue it to the bottom half of a piece of blue construction paper.
- Make a winter scene on the top half of the blue construction paper. Students may use the templates provided or cut their own shapes out of construction paper and glue in place. They might illustrate something specific in their poem or just be creative!
- Use white paint to add snow to the picture. To make the snowflakes, add a small amount of water to the paint to thin it out just a bit. Dip the paintbrush in the paint and hold the brush over the picture. Run your fingertip across the end of the bristles fanning them out. This will splatter small drops of paint onto the picture. Repeat as necessary.
