It’s chilly outside but inside is so delightful especially when you can do a fun and easy craft with your toddler or preschooler without much prep!
In this fun winter craft you only need a few crafts supplies like paint and construction paper and a few other items you probably already have in your kitchen or bathroom cupboard.
Here’s what you’ll need to get started:
(This post contains affiliate links.)
- White, orange and black Washable Tempera Paints
- 2 Plastic or Paper Plates and/or paint palette
- Blue and black Construction Paper
- Googly Eyes
- Rounded Potato Masher
- 2-3 Q-Tips
Gather your supplies. Using the scissors cut out a top hat from the black construction paper.
Pour some white paint onto one plate and black on the other.
Dip the potato masher into the white paint (make sure the entire surface is covered in paint so that it stamps a full circle) and stamp three circles, underneath each other, down the center of the blue construction paper to make the snowman’s body.
Before the paint dries add the googly eyes to the head of the snowman. Stick the top hat onto the top of the snowman’s head as well before the paint dries. That way you don’t have to use glue!
Dip the q-tip into the black paint and add buttons to your snowman’s body.
Then use the same q-tip dipped into black paint to create a mouth on your snowman.
Use the same q-tip to create arms for your snowman.
Using the other side of the q-tip or a new clean q-tip, create a carrot nose for your snowman.
Finally, use a clean q-tip and dip it into the white paint and add snowflakes all around your snowman!
This was very easy to do and lots of fun! You don’t have to have a lot of craft supplies to do fun crafts with your toddler or preschooler. With a few key supplies you and other household items you can get very creative!
