Have you seen all the creative snowman art for preschoolers out there? For the past 13 or so Januaries, I have had so much fun with our snowman unit. And every year, I change things a bit. This year I wanted to try adding some texture to our snowman art activity along with a variety of loose parts.
We first read the book Snowballs by Louis Ehlert. We then got to experience a couple of snow days. (That’s about all we get annually here.) I wanted to make sure it was open-ended, that the preschoolers could add their own touches. And I wanted it to be a sensory experience. I wanted their fingers to feel different textures. This snowman activity did all of that!
Creative Snowman Art for Preschoolers
What you will need:
Preparing this activity:
Mix equal amounts of white glue and shaving cream. Cut a simple snowman shape from the paper. Gather whatever embellishments you choose and place them in a tray or some sort of container.
What we used:
Milk caps, buttons, yarn, raffia, fabric scraps, plastic forks, and other small items I found. I also cut out orange triangles for the nose and we used googly eyes.
