Looking for a cozy, non-Christmas winter bulletin board display, with a sprinkle of audience participation? Look no further than my new Spot The Difference Snowpeople Display!
If you follow me on Instagram, ontarianlibrarian, you already know that I am in love with the Cricut Explore Air 2 machine at my desk! I’m in change of designing the bulletin boards, entry sign, and book bin signs at my library’s branches. We’ve planned out the entirety of 2020, and I’m getting a great head start by using the Cricut every day!
The Snowpeople display is super easy, and super effective. I cut the bodies, eyes, and arms by hand using bristol board, but everything else was with the Cricut. Hats, carrot noses, coal pieces, letters, and snowflakes. With Spot the Difference, it’s great to have the uniform cutting of the Cricut to make it exactly the same.
The differences on my board:
- size of the carrot nose
- colour of the top hat ribbon
- winking eye
- number of pieces of coal in the smile
- shape of coal on tummy
- shape of branches
I’m planning to add a couple differences as the weeks go by:
- a blue bird perched on one of the arms
- a red bird perched on the other’s hat
- a scarf on one
Spot the Difference displays are great for the library because they can look stylish and cute, while adding a level of challenging visual literacy for little ones.
What Spot the Difference Displays have you tried, or do you want to try? If you make the Snowpeople display, tag me in it, or send me a photo and I’ll add it to this post!
