Puffy Paint Snowmen (with freebie!)


Puffy Paint Snowmen!


Today I'm going to share with you a fun winter craft.  These puffy paint snowmen are fun to make and come out looking so cute when they are finished.

The first step is to either draw a snowman on a sheet of paper.  Cardstock or construction paper works best because they are thick and the puffy paint is wet until it dries.  You can download a template for free by clicking HERE.

Here's the puffy paint.  You make it by combining equal parts of white school glue and shaving cream and mixing it up well.  You can see which kinds I used in the picture, but brands don't matter.  I've used all different brands for this activity.


This is what it will look like when it is mixed.  I added in glitter to make it extra sparkly.  


Then you are ready to have your students (or your own children) paint the puffy paint onto the snowman template.  

    

This is what it looks like when it is painted.  I sprinkle more glitter on when it is still wet.  It will take at least 24 hours to fully dry.  


For the nose, I used the foam sheets to cut out a carrot shaped nose. I used sequins for the buttons.  For the eyes, I used google eyes and for the mouth, I used black paint. 


Here's what the snowman looks like when it is finished!  I glued it on blue construction paper.  The "falling snowflakes" are fingerprints that each student made.  Then we used a circle sponge and white paint to put the snow at the base of the snowman.

I hope you enjoy making this craft!
