Remarkle photos included. While we are on the subject, this reading will make your lesson more meaningful for the children and you as well. A more profound awareness to supercede the superficial rush in teaching that we find ourselves at times. What are we here for. To pass on a beautiful knowledge through Art, of wonder and a world.Kind regards,tere

Subject: [art_education] Snowflake templates/stencils-plastic
Date: Monday, November 2, 2009, 6:47 PMHello All,
I am trying to do a rubbing project with my Kindergarteners. Last year we used lots of flat textured items that they could rub over to get different textural effects, then cut out the shapes to make a snowman and added other textural items to make him 3D.
This year I wanted to do a rubbings/resist type project using Snowflakes. I am thinking it would be cool to have some hard plastic snowflake templates or stencils to rub overwiht crayons or oil pastels. Maybe like 4"-5" big.
I could cut them out by hand from paper, but would be WAY time consuming and tedious as I want to have many different designs for them to choose from.
I have seen the kind of thing I am looking for with insects on them, but not snowflakes. I did try searching online but only found like paper stencils or super expensive ones you use for decorating cakes etc...
Does anyone know of a source for this kind of thing? I know it is hard to understand what I am describing, but any direction would help.

- Masaru Emoto's claims are not scientific and have never been published in any mainstream science journal. His photos are very beautiful and artistic. However his experiments are are pseudoscience. He clams thought waves effect water......what are thought waves? I do not think you can effect my health one way or the other by thinking thoughts about the water in my body. Don't teach junk science....Steven GrahamOn Nov 2, 2009, at 5:45 PM, Terri Stokes wrote:
- Oriental trading company had some snowflakes for sale.
But they were the positive design, so if he kids painted around them they would end up with a negative space snowflake. Might be a good combo to add to the lesson; positive and negative space.

- There is research being done-please do not stop someone from sending loving ideas to the kids by being narrow minded-teaching the science of how the crystals are formed with this man's belief systems(being honest that they are his) is wonderful and shows the ways science has always formed-first it isn't believable and then it is-oh yeah, Steve, the world is flat-and ends-it's scientific.......
