This is the same concept. Instead this time we used empty sewing spools.

Spool Stamped Snowman Art for Toddlers
Many years ago someone donated a huge box of empty sewing spools.
After cutting snowman shapes out of paper, I realized the spools would resemble snowflakes when stamped in paint. We’ve done white paint on blue paper, but for this particular activity I decided to go with the color scheme we were using that week, a blue tone.
We had lots of white “snow” at our play dough table and sensory bin so we knew that snow is not blue unless it is tinted.
What you will need:
- Empty sewing spools
- Blue or white paint
- White or blue paper
Setting it up:
Cut paper into a snowman shape. Pour a shallow amount of paint into a tray and place the empty sewing spool in it.
Take the spool from the paint and stamp it on the paper. Or slide it. Because that’s fun, too!
After drying, I decided I wanted them displayed in our window. I used a hole punch and then opened a paper clip to use as a hanger.
Dancing snowmen in the window!

This book changed the way I felt about art with young children. It opened my eyes on the difference between process art and product art. The activities that MaryAnn Kohl provides in this book allow toddlers and 2 year olds to explore the materials they are working with. I give it 5 stars!
