To make our snow paint, we mixed equal parts of:
White foam shaving cream
White Elmer's Glue
Then, I dished up the bowls and let the kids make their own snowy creations. I gave my toddler plain shaving foam hoping that it would make clean-up easier. I'm not sure it helped, since he still required a bath after our art time, but I'm sure it was easier to get shaving cream out of his hair than it would have been to remove the glue....and he had a blast!!
We practiced the letter "S", tracing it first with our fingers and then painting it to create an 'S for snow".
We used our abstract snowy paintings to make melted snowman abstract art.
The paint dries to create a puffy 3D effect that the kids loved. It added a whole new tactile dimension to our art for the day.
