WINTER CRAFT FOR KIDS - snowman potato printing


Materials
  • White paint
  • Blue paper
  • One potato (halved)
  • Colored craft foam
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Optional- twigs

Note:  We used twigs for the snowman arms, but you could just as easily make them from paper.  We also refrigerated our white paint overnight to make it cold.  This tied nicely to the snowman theme and also added another great sensory element to the activity.

Method
I cut one potato in half, and that was perfect for us since I have two girls.  Have the kids dip the potato in the white paint and then use it to stamp a snowman

Rosie and Jewel delighted in stamping their snowmen.  They loved the potato stamps and had lots of fun stamping freely with them while their art was drying

Once their snowmen were dry we embellished them with shapes we cut from craft foam, and of course we added glitter!
