A very cute winter craft is making name snowmen. I made the circles before hand and cut out the rest of the shapes as well. When it was time for the kids to make their snowman they found the correct letters and built their snowman to spell their own name. They also had some fun painting with a scrub brush to make snowflakes on the picture as well.
Although when you have a one year old do this …. It kind of looks like the poor snowman melted hahaha
Now that the warmer weather is here and we can see the sidewalks ( the snow is gone !! ) we decided to paint them up nice. I made side walk paint by mixing cornstarch, water, and food colouring.
the colours were nice and bright and when it dried it had such a neat texture!
We thought the tree would like so colour as well …
Using a vegetable brush was a highlight of the week.
We scrubbed the potatoes and the yams…
We had fun guessing which one was orange and which one was white on the inside.
After they were all washed and diced all of them up we had the potatoes and yams for lunch.
But I think they enjoyed painting with them more than eating them =-)
