2-Ingredient Snow Paint Snowman

Make your own Snow Paint Snowman with just 2 ingredients! All you need is shaving cream and a bottle of white glue – both are available at the dollar store. Snow Paint Snowman is a calming, motor skill-driven activity, but really, they’re just fun to make!

Snow Paint Snowman

You Will Need:

  • A Bowl
  • Paint Brushes
  • Bottle of White Glue
  • Bottle of Shaving Cream (not gel)
  • White Glitter
  • Colored Construction Paper
  • Ribbon
  • Buttons
  • Scissors

Making the Snow Paint

Snow Paint
  1. Prep by grabbing your bowl, white glue, a bottle of shaving cream and a paintbrush.
  2. Combine the entire bottle of glue into the bowl along with enough shaving cream to cover the glue. Do not use the whole bottle of shaving cream.
  3. Mix thoroughly with your paintbrush, adding more shaving cream if needed.
  4. You should be left with fluffy snow paint!

Prepping your Snowman

Snow Paint Snowman
  1. To begin, take out a black sheet of construction paper. If you have a hole punch handy, punch out roughly 7 circles per snowman and set aside.
  2. If you don’t have a hole punch, take out a black sheet of construction paper and fold it in half four times.
  3. With your scissors handy, cut out a small quarter-inch circle. Repeat if necessary.
  4. Next, you’ll want to take another black sheet of construction paper and cut out a hat for your snowman.
  5. Now, grab a sheet of orange construction paper. Cut a small carrot-shaped triangle from the paper.
  6. Choose 2-3 buttons for your snowman.
  7. Trim a piece of ribbon to 5 inches
  8. Grab glitter and set aside all of your items.

Making your Snowman

  1. Grab your favorite color construction paper.
  2. Using your paintbrush, scoop a big glob into the center of your brush, and begin painting the body for your snowman. We made this easier by adding two or three globs of snow paint to our paper and spreading them around to create the body and head.
  3. Don’t forget to add snow! Add snow paint to the “ground” in your painting, and maybe even a few snowflakes falling as well.
  4. Now we’ll decorate our snowman – grab some white glitter, empty some into your hand, pinch and sprinkle onto your snow.
  5. Add your snowman’s hat to the top of his head.
  6. Add his eyes using two black construction paper circles (2 large googly eyes if you have them). Do not press them into the “snow” – you won’t be able to see them as well.
  7. Add your snowman’s orange, triangle nose.
  8. Using 5 or so black circles, create your snowman’s smile.
  9. With your 2-3 buttons, drop them vertically down his chest.
  10. Grab your ribbon, tie a knot about a third of the way down the strand. With the shorter end in hand, place it over your snowman’s neck to give him a scarf.

Give your Snowman about 2 days to fully dry. He should be left nice and fluffy!

Happy DIY-Day!! I can’t wait to show you how to make these adorably cute snowmen for this upcoming winter – they’re made from just socks and rice!

Supplies
Supplies

You Will Need:

  • Socks (One white, one colored)
  • A Cup
  • 1 lb bag of rice
  • 2-3 Buttons
  • Ribbon
  • Pom Pom
  • Black and Orange Marker
  • 2, 6-inch strands of twine
  • Scissors

To Begin:

  1. Begin by placing your white sock in your cup – wrap the opening of the sock around the lip of the cup to hold your sock open for you.
  2. Pour enough rice into your sock to make the body of your sock snowman – check your sock to make sure you have not too much nor too little.
  3. Using your twine, tie off the snowman’s body as close to the rice as possible. I usually triple-knot to make sure it doesn’t come undone.
  4. Next, with the help of a friend, hold open the opening of your sock and allow your friend to pour rice into your snowman to make the head.
  5. Like the body, we’ll use a strand of twine to tie off the head. Trim the hanging strands of twine.
  6. You should be left with a sock in the shape of a snowman – he’ll have a small tuft of fabric at the top of his head – you can either trim this or leave it as is. It will soon be covered with a hat!
  7. Next, we’ll grab our colorful sock and cut it in half – right at the arch of the sock.
  8. Using the toe-half of the sock, we’ll place this on top of our snowman’s head. Roll the bottom up to see his face.
  9. Using your black marker, mark two dots for his eyes, and a dotted half-crescent for the mouth.
  10. With the orange marker, draw a sideways triangle for the nose.
    (You can also use a small orange pompom if you have one – attach with hot glue)
  11. Next, we’ll add the scarf – you can either use the fabric from what’s leftover of your colorful scarf or use a pretty ribbon. The choice is yours!
  12. For this last step, we’ll heat up our hot glue gun and grab a couple of buttons. Then we’ll glue them to the front of our snowman.
  13. And finally, you have a cute and cuddly snowman!
