Vasthi M. rated this resource with 5/5 stars, which is “Extremely Satisfied,” and she said,

“I used this resource right at the beginning of December and it was a fun way to get in the mood for all things winter. My class loved the snowmen and I brought in glitter to add to them. Most of my class had NEVER worked with glitter before and even though it's a mess and I'll see it forever probably, it was so worth it. You cannot go through childhood and not have glitter experiences:)”
