I found some pink spongy hair curlers at the dollar store and immediately thought they would be great for snowmen. That doesn’t usually happen to me. Normally, I see something at the dollar store and buy it even though I have no idea what I will do with it. I forget how many were in the package (I’m thinking 8) but it’s a pretty good deal for $1.
Pour some white paint into a tray or plate for dipping. Have your child dip one side of the sponge curler into the white paint and then press it horizontally on the bottom of the black construction paper to make snow.
Little C did this part with gusto!
Next, the kids will hold the curler vertically and stamp some snowmen on top of the snow.
So look around your house and your world. You never know what interesting objects you can re-purpose into kids art supplies. It’s not only inexpensive, but the results can be quite fun.
