How to Make Snow Paint with Shaving Cream and Glue. Easy Winter Activities for Kids. Winter Art Projects. Snow Painting for kids. Indoor Snow Art. Make your own snow. Snow art Projects. Frozen Party Ideas. Snow Paint might be one of the easiest DIY recipes ever. Bonus, it only costs $2 to make and then whatever food coloring or glitter you add from your home supply. When the weather gets cold outside, but not enough to snow… OR, when the kids are sick {you can really tell in these pictures} and want to play in the snow, Snow Paint is a great alternative!

How to make Snow Paint

All you need is Foam Shaving Cream and Glue. Both you can snag at The DollarTree. I used a whole bottle of glue and 3/4 the shaving cream. It is really up to you on the mixing. More glue makes it thicker. More foam makes it less sticky and it dries faster. Equals parts of both are recommended for an even consistency.

The kids can do it!

Both Cash & Wyatt LOVED spraying the shaving cream into the bowl. I just had a big mixing bowl that we use for crafts. We then took turns squeezing in the glue. We used the whole bottle. I then divided the freshly made Snow Paint into a 3 bay divided tray {also from the DollarTree} so that we could make three different kinds of Snow Paint. One we dyed blue, one we added silver glitter to and the third we left pure white.

What to do with Snow Paint

You make a blizzard of course! We took our Snow Paint to the Teaching Table {see here how I set up my Homeschool Preschool Classroom} and pulled out some dark colors of construction paper. The black paper works great for contrast!

I gave the boys straws and paint brushes and they did just fine on their own. Wyatt {2yo} decided he wasn’t a fan of touching it so he preferred to swirl it around and blow through the straw. Cash loved piling more on with a spoon and spreading it around with his fingers.

Once the blizzards are dry, you can hang them up and keep them as artwork or the kids can feel them. They’re a super fun squishy texture when they’re dry. Softer than puff paint. Cash got a fine motor skill workout in by peeling it off of the paper {so long, artwork} Overall they had a really fun time with this Snow Paint ALL DAY. Especially since they were both sick, we made the projects and then they took a nap while they dried. They were both eager to wake up and feel the dried blizzards.
