INSIDE: Create a Puffy Paint Snowflake Craft with your toddler or preschooler and let them practice their fine motor skills as well as make a beautiful snowflake! This wonderful craft is great for toddlers and preschoolers but is also a lot of fun for kindergarten aged kids.
I just love how this puffy paint snowflake turned out! The texture was amazing and using the icing piping bag was a lot of fun! We have done a few puffy paint crafts in the past like a Christmas tree, Puffy Paint Cupcake Craft and Puffy Paint Snowman. But I have to say that this snowflake craft is my favourite!

Puffy Paint Snowflake Craft
How to Make Puffy Paint
In a bowl combine combine 1/4 white school glue, 1/4 shaving cream and some blue glitter (optional). Use a craft stick or paint brush to mix it. Puffy paint resembles cloud but it doesn’t last for ever. Use the paint within 30 minutes. Once dry the paint will remain full for a few hours and then loose it thickness over time. It should feel dry to the touch.
Grab a icing piping bag and open it all the way. Use a spoon to scoop out the puffy paint into the piping bag. Then roll the top down to push the puffy paint down.
Grab a sheet of blue construction paper. For younger kids, use a pencil to draw the outline of a snowflake for them to trace with the puffy paint. Cut the bottom of the piping bag.
Have your little one trace the outline of the snowflake or create one of your own by squeezing the the puffy
Set it aside to dry and enjoy!

Play is at the core of learning during the early years and it can take many forms. One of the most important of these is sensory play because it engages all of a child’s senses (taste, touch, smell, sight and hearing) and has a enoumous positive impact on brain development.
My Sensory Play Kits are a fun and easy way to keep your child engaged while at the same time capitalizing on the benefits of sensory play to nurture their mind!
