After the mitten was covered in tissue paper, students brushed a coat of ModgePodge over the entire mitten, to give it a shine.

At a third station, students stamped snowflakes onto a piece of blue construction paper, then splattered white paint over it to look like falling snow.

Thanks for the great ideas!! I'm an E.A. and I'm always looking for ideas to use for my special needs student. I think he'll love doing these. He really likes creating and doing crafts, so these will be a lot of fun!! :-)
