Snow paintings with puffy paint

The excitement of last week's first real snow overflowed to inside our classroom. We made snow paintings with puffy paint. We used a large plastic bristled paint brush to dab the paint onto colored construction paper. Some children enjoyed making snowmen and swirls.

The paint has a great feel, airy and voluminous. It keeps its puff after it dries. 
Puffy paint is easy to make. Mix 2 parts shaving cream to 1 part Elmer’s glue. I mixed it in a big bowl and then spooned it onto a small tray. It dries pretty quickly and does not keep so make only as much as you will use.
Today it rained and all the snow melted but more is forecasted this week.
