Winter means chilly weather and snow days with the kids. While we love playing outdoors, building snowmen and catchings snowflakes on our tongue during snow days, we have to come indoors at some point to warm up!
Indoor activities are great for cold winter days when you’re not ready to face those brutal temperatures. We love arts and crafts, especially in the winter. We decided to make our own indoor snow paint that the kids would enjoy. This snow paint dries puffy which creates a cool fluffed up effect like snow. We added glitter to make it look like fresh sparkling snow.
This DIY puffy snow paint is so simple to make. To create your snow paint, mix together half white glue and half shaving cream in a bowl or on a plate.
Use the puffy snow paint to paint wintery scenes. It feels like you are painting with a cloud! It’s definitely a different texture which requires a different painting technique. We made snowflakes and snowmen on black and blue paper. Before your paint dries, sprinkle it with glitter for a sparkly effect.
For your snowman you can create accessories with googly eyes, pom poms and paint like we did. Then just let them dry overnight and enjoy the wintery artwork!
