After reading a wintry book, allow your students to make snow paint. Snow paint is inexpensive, easy to make, and tons of fun. To make snow paint simply mix equal amounts of white glue and shaving cream together. Cut out various winter shapes such as snowmen and snowflakes from cardstock. Allow your little ones to spread their snow all over their shapes. When the snow paint dries, it will become puffy. Your students will have a blast with this activity!
I cut a sponge to fit the container, and just poured glue in. Students can just tap their shapes on the top of the sponge for a thin, even coat of glue - no more puddles! I worried about the sponges getting icky, but I still have the ones that I made well over a year ago, and the sponges are still intact AND the glue isn't stinky :)
