Create a fun craft and sensory activity for kids with this two-ingredient snow paint! Simply mix school glue with shaving cream, paint onto construction paper, and the paint dries fluffy and spongy. This craft also serves as a boredom-buster winter activity and allows for the opportunity to start a conversation with your kids about the changing weather and snow in winter.


  • School glue
  • Shaving cream
  • A container for mixing
  • Paintbrushes
  • Construction paper


  1. Begin by making your snow paint. Mix 1 part school glue with 2 parts shaving cream. We used a glass jar to mix the ingredients but you can also use a mixing bowl or any other container.  Step 1.jpgCaroline Gravino
  2. Once the paint is mixed, spoon into a bowl if that makes it easier for your little ones.  Step 2.jpgCaroline Gravino
  3. Dip paintbrushes into the mixture and paint on dark construction paper. Step 3.jpgCaroline Gravino
