Winter Craft Activities for Kids
4 of 7
This sponge-painted snowman makes the perfect winter decoration. For this craft, you will need:
- one sponge, cut up into small pieces
- thick white tempura paint
- light blue construction paper
- scraps of paper, buttons, fabric, and yarn
- paste or glue
Clip a clothespin to a small piece of sponge, and dip the sponge into the paint. Sponge paint three circles onto the construction paper to create the shape of a snowman. Sponge paint along the bottom of the paper to create the ground, and also sponge paint some falling snow.
When the paint is dry, decorate your snowman with a scarf made of paper or fabric, button eyes, scraps of yarn for the mouth, and even real twigs for the arms.
Hint: If you are working with a large group of children, set up a table just for sponge painting. While some children are painting, others can work on creating accessories for the snowman.
