This adorable canvas art came home from school with my child but we had to share! It's great example of a multi-step craft. momstown loves the vibrant colours and creativity that each child brought to these whimsical snowmen. Younger children could take a break between steps – it is all up to the creator!
What you need:
Step 1: have children paint the canvas blue, leaving a strip a the bottom white (to represent the snow).
Step 2: Stamp with white paint and circle sponges, to create snowmen with 2 or 3 stacked circles.
Step 3: Decorate snowmen with foamy shapes for hats, scarves, buttons, etc. The peel-back sticky ones are easiest for kids to work with.
Step 4: Use a sharpie marker to add eyes, nose and mouth.
Gallery-worthy work – and each picture will be unique!
