Melted Snowman Painting

Melted Snowman Painting

This project is perfect your youngest artists. There is no "right" way for this project to look and the messier it gets, the more adorable the final product will be. My little guys just loved the freedom to paint any way they wanted and create "Frosty" after a day playing in the sun!

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. construction paper - blue and various colors
  2. paint and paintbrushes - white
  3. googly eyes
  4. glue (optional)
  5. scissors
  1. Gather all materials. This is a great project that can include as little as construction paper and white paint or as many different craft materials as you like.

  2. First, I gave each of the kids a piece of blue construction paper and some white paint and let them paint away. We talked about what a melting snowman would look like and feel like. My three-year-old tried painting circles, but my two-year-old mostly had fun splashing paint around!

  3. Then, I cut out a top hat, scarf, and twig arms out of construction paper for my two-year-old. The older kids could have cut out these shapes for themselves, but they were at school.

  4. While the paint was still wet, my son put the different pieces of his snowman anywhere he wanted to on his page.

  5. The end result was a fun abstract painting. My two and three-year-olds had so much fun and thought the idea of painting a messy, melting snowman was hilarious!
