I mixed the "snow" by using equal parts white glue and shaving cream. Whip it together with a paint brush then start painting. Busy added googly eyes to make a snow monster and a pouf ball as a nose on my snowman. The cool thing about this concoction is that it dries puffy!
I got the idea for our next project here. They use a canvas, which is one thing that I don't just happen to have lying around. I do, however, have a stack of large blue construction paper, so clue construction paper it is.
Step 1: Create a snowflake using tape. I used blue painter's tape because it peels off easier.
Step 2: Using white paint, paint all over the paper. After she painted, I went back over it to make sure all of the taped snowflake was covered with paint.
Step 2: Wait for it to dry then peel off the tape to reveal your beautiful snowflake.
When using a white canvas, you can use various shades of blue paint instead of white so when you peel off the tape it creates a white snowflake. You can also use white paper. It's cheaper than a canvas, but I must say that it looks really cute on the canvas.
