Glitter Paint Snowman Craft
in a bowl and a new shower scrub. You can get a pack of these at the dollar store. This was the perfect stamper for our snowman’s body. The Toddlers could grab the pouf with a gross hand grasp and smash it right down on the construction paper.
Big Sister helped out with this craft and was the “teacher”. She did a great job helping Little Nephew to stamp his snowmen.
While the paint was still wet, we sprinkled **generous amounts** of clear glitter
right onto the paint. (But isn’t everything involving glitter always generous when kids are involved? 😉 )
We used the same technique recently when we made our Fine Motor Snowman Craft.
The glitter stuck right in the glue and the excess was shook off. Our snowmen were starting to look pretty snowy!
The next step involved Big Sister coming to the aid with her “teacher” duties. She squirted dots of glue
for eyes, noses, scarves, hats, and buttons. All of these were one at a time and because we were doing four kid’s worth of snowmen, she was pretty busy with her little glue assembly line!
Little Nephew was much more sure of himself when it came to squashing the black pony beads
into the glue dots. This was a great fine motor activity for little hands. I love those little wrinkly knuckles!
Big Sister helped to keep everyone on task with the steps.
I cut little pieces of orange felt into carrots for the snowmen noses and tiny felt hats from felt sheets. The eyes were googly eyes and the scarves were just strips of red felt. Once everything was glued on, we used a brown marker to draw stick arms.
