Let It Snow

Now that the fun of Christmas projects is over, we’ve moved onto snowflake/snowman projects. (Also mostly projects that Love Bug doesn’t want to do in the way that I’d planned….)

1. Decorated Snowman/Name Snowman

I found this cute idea, and I loved the idea of a snowman craft that was also a name recognition activity. However, Love Bug decided he wasn’t interested in writing his name – he just wanted to decorate it. So I had cut out a bunch of pieces for the snowman’s body that ended up just getting decorated and it looks a little like a vertical caterpillar with a hat. I put on some glue for button eyes, and then he put on the rest of the glue for buttons down the rest of the snowman. We also added a felt hat, and then he wanted to decorate with paint and glitter.

The finished product is cute:

2. Cork Stamped Snowflake

We got this idea from No Time for Flashcards, and I wanted to do it since it’s been a while since we tried wine cork painting.

First, Love Bug cut out a snowflake (sort of).

Then I put some white paint and some glitter in bowls and gave him two wine bottle corks. He dipped them in the glue and glue and stamped them on the snowflake.

This was fun and easy and mess-free on his hands.

3. Cotton Ball Snowflake

Another snowflake craft I was excited for and knew LB would love because he loves cotton balls, and another one from No Time for Flashcards.  The plan was to paint glue on blue construction paper in a snowflake shape and to then put cotton balls in the glue. LB didn’t want to do a snowflake shape; he just wanted to do his own thing.

So it doesn’t really look like much of anything, though he did say it was snow on a car.
