Ingredients for your snow paint recipe

 
  • White glue
  • Shaving cream
  • Thick paper
  • Paint brush
 

How to make your snow paint


1. Measure out equal parts of the white glue and shaving cream and mix until very thick and fluffy. It’s that easy!

2. Get your toddler or preschooler to use generous amounts of the mixture on their paint brush and start painting straight away onto the paper.

3. They’ll be able to make some great wintery scenes with snowmen, snowflakes and snowballs.

4. Once they’ve finished, wait for the snow paint to dry and harden. They’ll then love touching their 3-dimensional piece of art.
