German Houses in the Winter

German Houses in the Winter, originally uploaded by paintedpaper.

3rd grade students examined the various characteristics of the buildings in Germany. The students added the tudor trims, shutters that open, and fun window boxes and plants around the home.

These houses are big,18 x 24 construction paper background, with large snow flakes and snow flurries sprayed on.

Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow.....


  1. Thanks for all your inspiration, I love to follow your Flicker photo stream, and share your exciting ideas with my art students. We are going to have a try at some of your Indian art, especially the decorated elephants. Have a fantastic Christmas. Liz in Sheffield England
