Make-It Monday: Snow Paint

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:

  1. Mix equal parts white glue and shaving cream.
  2. Paint desired surface (I cut snowflakes out of heavy weight blue paper for Trevor to use) with the Snow Paint.

The supplies:

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!
