I did a quick bathroom raid to find some wintery-looking materials for a simple invitation to create. I love just setting out some small loose parts and seeing what the kids can produce! I found some cotton balls, rounds and Q-tips, white paint and glue…and of course some glitter!
Ava got to work using the q-tips and cotton balls as paint brushes. Her artwork looked very much like snow! She dipped a q-tip in glue and stuck it on the paper so I helper her add a few more to make a snowflake.
Mack gravitated toward the glue to construct a snowman out of the cotton rounds. I like to pour glue on a plate rather that keep it in the bottle for these kinds of projects. It gives the kids a bit more freedom rather than me hanging over their shoulders making sure they are using too much glue 🙂
After adding some glitter to their art, they each ended up with some beautiful winter wonderlands!
