It's Wednesday! We're getting closer to the weekend :)
The weather here in Rhode Island hasn't felt very Christmas like. In fact, it has felt a lot like spring. Rain and temperatures in the 60's. I can't complain too much because come January and February I will be wishing for weather like this, but around Christmastime we just like a little snow around here!
I found this tutorial (I really love her snowflakes...I just didn't have time to get that fancy!) on Pinterest a few weeks ago and decided to give it a whirl. This project cost me less than $2.00.
- White foam shaving cream
- White glue (we used Elmer's)
- Glitter would be a super fun addition!
- Mix equal parts shaving cream and glue in a bowl
- Paint away
Liza was very excited to paint with her "snow."
The paintbrushes didn't make it too long. Using her hands was more up her 2 year old alley.
It was neat to listen to her explaining to me what the "snow" felt like. This conversation was unprompted and I loved every second of hearing words like sticky, fluffy and goopy come out of her mouth. It's the teacher inside of me :)
It took a while for these paintings to dry, but when they did it was pretty neat. The goopier parts dried nice a fluffy and it gave the illusion of snow. Liza decided to experiment with one of her pictures by peeling all the fluffy parts off. Added sensory experience, I guess!
I think that even big kids would like this activity. The would probably enjoy making a snow scene or some fun snowmen.
Try it out!
