Fun Igloo Picture

Emily was so pleased with how this igloo picture turned out, and it was so much fun to do - especially if your child happens to love stickers as much as she does!


To make your own igloo picture, you will need: a package of labels like the ones shown below (very inexpensive), construction paper, glue and scissors.


On a sheet of light blue construction paper, build your wall of ice bricks!


Flip the paper over, draw a half circle, and cut it out.


Cut out a smaller half circle for the opening of the igloo. We cut some of the labels in half to do the brick-work as shown below.


Glue the pieces down, and outline with a marker. Fill in the center of the opening to the igloo. Emily loved watching her picture come to life!


We cut smaller labels and used them for snow.


So much fun!!

Awesome idea to go with Snow Bears by Jan Brett! The bears live in an igloo--I am going to link this activity to my review of that book!

It is always such a delight to stop by your blog and see what creative projects you are doing. I love that so many of your projects are toddler proof with stunning results - both the igloo and lantern are fantastic ideas.

Wow, great igloo!
I should try this with C... even if usually more stickers end up on her belly than the paper! LOL

Deborah (Teach Preschool) said...

That is just too cute!

MamaGames said...

This is a fun idea - I love the labels as bricks. My kids would really get into this one!

Katie said...

Great idea and creative use for those stickers, kind of like a paper mosaic without out the glue. Love it.

We finally had a chance to try this. The kids loved it! Thanks. http://fruitofhands.blogspot.com/2010/02/igloos.html
