This snowman has three circles stacked on top of each other to create the "Birds Eye View" effect. I photocopied three circles on card stock for the younger students. They traced around the circle with oil pastel, then smudged the pastel in towards the center of the circle. Students then cut the circles out and glued them on top of each other. they added accessories on their snowman and some snowflakes. These snowmen look nice in a traditional blue colour, but students in my class were encouraged to try other colours, such as green, pink and yellow. The trick to making it look cohesive is ensuring that the background colour matches the colour of the snowman highlights
