Who is getting tired of snow? We live in Ohio and we still have a LOT of snow. (Just ask our dog, Rusty, because he finds it hard to go potty when the snow is up to his belly!) It’s starting to melt here and I am looking forward to seeing grass again! Today is also windy so being outside is COLD! But we can have fun making a snowman inside today. 🙂
You’ll only need a few supplies…I used half a piece of blue construction paper, 3 Qtips (also called cotton swabs), a small amount of paint (white, black and red) and a small disposable plate.
You’ll probably want to lay some old newspaper down on the table to protect it from any run away paint drops. 😉 Lay your piece of construction paper on the newspaper and the small disposable plate. Have the Qtips within reach.
Put a very small amount of white paint onto the plate. I actually put more out then I needed.
Using the end of one Qtip, dip it into the paint and start making dots on the construction paper in the shape of a snowman. I suggest starting at the top with the snowman’s head to avoid laying a hand or arm on the freshly painted dots.
Make a second snowball for the snowman’s belly.
And then a 3rd snowball for the bottom of the snowman.
Now put a very small amount of black paint on the plate. And get a fresh Qtip.
Add dots to make a face…a few dots on his belly for buttons…add black dots for his stick arms…and more dots for his hat.
Now it’s time for a very small amount of red paint to be put on the plate. And grab a third fresh Qtip.
Add some red dots around the snowman’s “neck” to make a scarf.
And you’re finished! Great job! I hope you had fun making a snowman while you stayed inside where it’s warm! 🙂
