Chalk Snowman

Nathan made this snowman with crushed up chalk.
Crushing the chalk was more work than I had anticipated.  Nicholas ended up taking it outside and beating it with a hammer until it was powdery enough to use.
Nathan 'drew' a snowman and snowy ground using glue and then sprinkled the crushed chalk on top.

Then he added a hat, scarf, sticks for arms, a broom, a carrot nose and some eyes and buttons with construction paper.
super cute and fun and a really neat texture too.
we had some leftover crushed chalk to use for a future project as well.
be sure to join us below for the Hey Mom, Look What I Did link party.
and sign up for the tote bag giveaway as well.

I loved the chalk as well, it's always fun trying something different.
