Who doesn’t love a cute snowman? In Southern California, we rarely get snow to make a real snowman and we have only had snow once since the kids were born and they were too young to remember it. So, we do snowman crafts instead or go to events with artificial snow. This week, we decided to do a simple snowman craft which is easy and fun.
Snowman at Night:
You will need:
- Equal parts of baking soda and water (depending on how many children are making this craft)
- Paint brush
- Container for baking soda ‘paint’
- Blue or black construction paper
- Decorations for the snowman such as craft foam cut into shapes, twigs and google eyes
- Snowman cookie cutter
- White glue or tacky glue
Mix equal parts of baking soda and water. We used 1/4 cup for our four children. Set the cookie cutter out on the construction paper and have your preschooler paint inside it using the baking soda and water ‘paint.’ Remove the cutter and have your child dot snow in the sky and on the ground. Allow to dry. Then, have your child add the features and secure with glue.
