Puff Paint Snowman.

I saw a great recipe for homemade puff paint here at No Time for Flash Cards—1/2 cup glue plus 1-1/2 cups shaving cream. This fluffy white ‘paint’ was perfect for painting snow. I drew the outline of a snow man on the inside of a cereal box.

Then Red helped me mix the glue and shaving cream together. Feeling the slippery glue and the fluffy shaving cream was a great sensory experience.


Then he started to paint. First with a spatula…

…then with his hands…

…then with his knees and elbows…

…and then with his feet!

When he was younger, he hated getting his hands messy, but I think it is safe to say that he is now embracing the mess!

After his artwork dries, we will cut the snowman out and glue it to a sheet of construction paper. I’ll update the post with his final work.


  1. What a great idea!! I think I might try that tomorrow!

  2. Hope you're little one(s) have as much fun as mine did!
