I whipped up this simple, homemade puffy paint and told the kids we were going to make our own creations with "snow."

How We Did It

Shaving Cream

To create this homemade "snow" paint, mix one part shaving cream with one part glue. The mixture ends up thick and goopy--and dries up puffy, like snow!

Shaving Cream

You could try painting with sponges, paintbrushes, or a spoon. Experiment with the paint and ways to use it. We tried a Q-Tip, but it was too small. My kids preferred glopping on the paint with sponges.

The creations just kept coming! Both kids really had fun with this thick, puffy paint.

The snow paint is so quick and easy to whip up. It's the perfect texture to create wintery scenes.
