The Snowy Day Craft:

In a paper bowl, add shaving cream and school glue in a 1:1 mixture. Next, invite your child to use a craft stick to stir up the mixture until it is well-combined. After that, your child can use a paintbrush to spread the puffy snow paint onto the blue card stock paper.

Next, use a pencil to draw the shape of Peter’s body onto red construction paper, and a small circle onto brown construction paper for Peter’s face. Invite your child to use scissors to carefully cut out the shapes. Younger kids may need some grown-up help with cutting the construction paper. If you are working with a large group of kids, I suggest having several of these shapes pre-cut ahead of time. Invite your child to add Peter to the puffy snow landscape painting. Set aside for the paint to dry completely, which may take a few days. Once it is dry, the paint will be light and fluffy!
