Puffy Paint Snowman Craft for Kids

This project is simple and easy to make! Preschool and Kindergarten students can do it with very little grown-up help. You probably already have all the supplies needed to make these adorable snowman portraits in your home or classroom.

Gather Your Materials

To make snowman portraits of your own, you will need:

Grab some shaving cream, glue, and cardstock to make this cute snowman craft for kids.

Make the Puffy Paint

Combine 1 part shaving cream and 1 part glue into a small paper bowl.

Students can use a craft stick or spoon to stir the glue mixture. Once the mixture is thoroughly combined, it is time to paint the portraits!

Optional: Add a dash of glitter or a bit of glitter glue to the puffy paint mixture for snow that sparkles. Beautiful!

Make the puffy paint and use it to create the shape of a snowman on cardstock.

Paint the Portraits

To create the snowman portraits, students can spoon the glue mixture onto the cardstock paper in the shape of a snowman. While the paint is still wet, add the construction paper details (hat, buttons, eyes, and nose).

Teacher Tip: Invite students to use the opposite end of the spoon to create dots of “snow” on the paper!

Allow the paint to dry completely. Note that this puffy paint can take a few days to dry.

Once dry, the paint will be puffy and textured to look just like real snow!

Use the cardstock to add final details like eyes, a nose, a hat, and buttons.

Proudly display your unique snowman crafts on bulletin boards around your classroom!
