How to Make Snow Paint

Making snow paint is such a fun craft and sensory activity for kids. This two-ingredient paint is simply made by mixing school glue with shaving cream. Paint onto construction paper and the paint dries fluffy and spongy. The craft is not only a boredom-buster winter activity but is also a great way to open up a conversation with your kids about the changing weather and snow in winter.
