Crafting with Kids – Snow Paint Winter & Valentine’s Garland

Painting with snow paint is so much fun, and once it dries, it really looks like snow! It’s the perfect craft to do with a toddler, too, because it doesn’t require precision. I’ve also included a free printable to use as a stencil to cut out the shapes.

Toddler Craft with Snow Paint for a Winter Garland

Gabe and I had so much fun making this – it’s so incredibly easy and easy cleanup if you use an old, plastic tablecloth so you don’t have to worry about your table getting messed up. But the paint wipes right off and then dries puffy – it has the neatest texture!

You could also use these as Valentine’s to give to friends!
