Snow Paint Recipe

If you are stuck inside on a cold day, we have a simple winter craft that your little artist will love!  Ms. Dana introduced us to this fun activity during a program last week, and it was quite a hit.  The children had a fabulous time creating glittery snowmen using a simple, 3 ingredient snow paint recipe.

*Please note*  This recipe is easy to adapt to different themes or holidays.  You could add red food coloring and create sparkly hearts for a Valentine’s Day activity.
