It was sweltering hot today in Southern California....where did our Fall weather go? So to keep cool (at least pretend), I thought it would be fun to have the kids paint some snowmen using shaving cream and glue. I got the idea from MeloMomma's blog.
|This is the snowman created by my son.|
First mix equal parts of shaving cream and glue (I used Elmer's). Then draw a snowman in pencil on the constructions paper, and have the kids use either there hands or a paintbrush to fill in the snowman drawing.
Cut out some coal eyes, carrot nose, buttons, and hat to accessorize the snowmen. Then let your art dry for about 24 hours.

|This is so much fun mom!!|
|My daughter added the accessories herself...not too bad.|
