Cotton Swab Painted Snowman Craft

Cotton Swab Painted Snowman Craft

My kiddos and I love making crafts together, especially for different holidays and seasons. Inspired by the Q-Tip Painted Snowman Craft from Mess for Less, my daughter and I made our own Cotton Swab Painted Snowman Craft last winter.

Materials

  • Blue construction paper
  • White crayon
  • Cotton swab
  • White paint
  • Scrap cardboard
  • Black dot stickers
  • Orange and black markers

Directions

  1. Draw an outline of a snowman and the ground on the blue construction paper with the white crayon.
  2. Paint in the white crayon outlines with the cotton swab and white paint.
  3. Use black dot stickers to create the coal eyes and buttons of the snowman.
  4. Draw an orange carrot nose on the snowman with the orange marker.
  5. Draw a black hat on the snowman with the black marker.

    I will show this to my friend who owns a preschool. I have shared so many posts with her and she is just overjoyed because she now has lots of activities for her cute little students. A snowman craft would be a great addition too!
