Continuing with our winter-themed art projects, Trevor used Snow Paint to decorate some snowflakes I cut out for him. This was our first time working with Snow Paint, and let me tell you it was so fun! The paint is squishy and such a great texture. It is an awesome sensory experience.
What you need:
- shaving cream
- white glue
How to make it:
- Mix equal parts white glue and shaving cream.
- Paint desired surface (I cut snowflakes out of heavy weight blue paper for Trevor to use) with the Snow Paint.

Having fun painting the snowflakes with the Snow Paint:
When they dry, the paint is puffy and gives the snowflakes a 3-D effect:
Showing Mama where to hang his snowflakes:
Since half the fun of using snow paint is being able to feel the bumpy surface once it’s dry I wanted to hang the snowflakes somewhere that Trevor had access to touch them. I used painter’s tape and put them up on the pantry door in our kitchen. He’s had a blast this morning feeling his snowflakes and taking them off the door and sticking them back on. The snowflakes aren’t the most durable and a couple have ripped, but that’s okay. What’s important is he’s having fun exploring them!
