This snowflake painting was done using a similar technique to our stunning Winter tree paintings, only this one was even easier. It was so easy, in fact, that Clara did it with great results!
Art So Easy, A Toddler Can Do It
December 26, 2009 by
We had so much going on during Christmas, that I thought the girls could use a little break from all the chaos today. Clara, in particular, seemed to be a bit over-whelmed with it all. So when Emily was off playing with all her lovely new toys, Clara and I snuck in a quick painting project. It was the perfect way to calm her (and me) down.
To make your own snowflake painting, you will need: light blue, dark blue, and purple paint, masking tape, and canvas board (very inexpensive).
First, make an “X” in the middle of the canvas board with masking tape.
Next, add another line of masking tape bi-secting the “X” as shown.
Add a few bits of masking tape on each end of the snowflake.
Invite your child over to PAINT!!! Extra bonus points for painting in your pajamas.
Encourage your child to cover the entire canvas board with paint.
Lots and lots of paint!
Now, allow the paint to dry completely.
When the paint is completely dry, gently peel off the masking tape.
Use a black marker to outline your beautiful snowflake.
