DIY Snow Paint

With the temperature dropping, why not let your children’s imaginations run wild and let them paint their very own winter wonderland? This easy two-step DIY is not only a great way to keep the little ones entertained, but also an important way to further develop their physical and cognitive skills.
This sensory activity is suitable for toddlers and pre-schoolers and gives them the chance to express themselves, by communicating their emotions and exploring their creativity. This activity also let’s them work on their hand eye coordination and mobility skills by using their hand muscles. We are sharing how to make snow paint so you can share this fun activity with your kids! Here is how to get started making your own.
You Will Need:

  • Shaving Cream
  • School Glue
  • Paintbrushes
  • Mixing Container
  • Paper


  1. Begin by making your snow paint. Mix 1 part school glue with 2 parts shaving cream, using the mixing container.
  2. Once the paint is mixed, spoon into a bowl if that makes it easier for your little ones.
  3. Dip paintbrushes into the mixture and you are now ready for painting

See how easy making snow paint can be? You can make all kinds of designs from snowflakes to snowmen and, of course add glitter to make even more cool creations.
Here at Bonny Babes, we encourage parents to get involved in activities with their children at home with DIY projects being an easy and fun way to reuse everyday items lying around. It is a great way to continue children’s learning and gain new skills.
We would love to see any photos of the paintings that your children have created using this DIY activity – share them on our Facebook and Instagram pages!
We would love to hear from you!
