Shaving Cream Snowman

I have been wanting to do this craft for a while. Preston wasn't feeling well yesterday...so we are trying to take it easy. It has been snowing everyday since Monday & is supposed to continue for the rest of the week. It is a perfect day for a snowman craft.

Here is what you need:

Paper {we used blue cardstock}
White Glue
Shaving Cream
Paint brush
pencil {optional}
Something to decorate the snow man with {felt, paper, raisins, buttons, twigs, etc}

We started by drawing a snowman shape with a pencil. That way they had a guide.



I put some shaving cream on a paper plate & then I just eyeballed the glue. No measurement...SORRY! I gave them each a paintbrush {you could also just use your fingers}. They giggled the whole time that they made it.





Once they were finished "painting"...we got out some little felt scarves, a hat, some buttons, an orange paper carrot, paper "twig" arms, & some google eyes to decorate the snowman. The boys LOVED this part too. It was fun to see how they set up their snowmen.

I love it! We're experiencing some crazy storms here lately and have been stuck inside. This would be the perfect thing for Maddie and I to try tomorrow!

I love how their snowmen turned out. My kids would love it if it were snowing all week.

Does it dry???

Tiffany said...

Yes it dries. It took a day or two. By day one..it was dry, but still a bit squishy!

This is such a cute idea! My kiddos would LOVE the fact that it dries and is "keep-able" (for awhile). Thanks!
