So I decided to start crafting today despite not having a plan of what to make or where to start. We have had so much snow here lately and even though I could go the rest of the winter without wanting to see another flake I decided that if I didn’t start with some snow related crafts I might miss my chance until next winter! So here’s what I came up with.
created by: J. Davis
-1 piece blue construction paper
-1 piece white construction paper
-white non-toxic paint
-pictures of family members or friends!
1. Rip a strip of the white construction paper off lengthwise and glue on top of blue paper to make a snowy foreground.
2. Cut out picture of family/friends and glue on opposite sides of snow scene.
3. Dip mini marshmallows in white paint and stamp snowballs between, on, and around pictures.
Tada! Instant indoor snowball fight!
Notes: This is a great activity for a cold snowy day when you don’t want to go outside and have an actual snowball fight. I did this activity with a child just over a year old and the mini marshmallows were a little hard for her to hold. I had to move her hand and hold the marshmallow with her. For younger children I would recommend letting them use the tips of their fingers (covered with paint of course!) to make dots (snowballs) on their paper.
