This is a simple winter activity involving tactile sensory exploration and body awareness.
Use shaving cream paint (see recipe below) to make a snowman on construction paper and then add body parts (cut out of colored paper). When the snowman dries, it will feel puffy!
The child who made this snowman didn't mind getting messy, but remember to offer a paintbrush, Q-tip, sponge or other tool for your more sensitive kids.
Recipe for Shaving Cream Paint:
- Mix equal parts of shaving cream and glue
- Use a paintbrush or hands to paint
- Shaving cream paint will be puffy when it dries
- Optional: add a drop or two of food coloring (I like to add red to make pink hearts for Valentine's Day)
