Do you wanna build a snowman?!?
Well more precisely paint one….or eat one. We had a crafting day yesterday as the weather was miserable.
My mummy prepared all the paints and materials while I watched Frozen for the millionth time! I also needed to get inspiration for my snowman artwork!
We used plain blue paper, white, black and orange paints, PVA glue, silver glitter and….marshmallows! Yes, you heard me right – little floaters! The ones you put in hot chocolate and epic big ones that we usually toast over an open fire.
We smothered with white paint on the paper with 3 great big splodges and stuck the marshmallows down with a mixture of paint and glue. I kept eating our supply of marshmallows though!!
It was very messy but enjoyable. I think you’d agree that our masterpieces look quite good! I had particularly good fun painting my hands and face…who needs a canvas when you have your body eh?
It’s a really simple craft and toddlers love to snack and paint at the same time!! The textures of the marshmallows are lovely and squishy! We’ve hung up our artwork as a Christmas display to show off to the rest of the family! I like to think mine are abstract works of art! Hehe!
Which one is your favourite snowman?
