I hopped over from Amanda's Weekend Bloggy Reads Linky Party to give you some blog love!!! I think the snow paint is a super idea (may just snag this one for a craft project around here!). Thanks for sharing!
Those snowflake pretzels are adorable! Love all your fun ideas. Have a warm and cozy weekend!
I love how the snowflakes turned out!! We will definitely be doing these soon! (stopping by from Preschool Corner)
Very cute! We had a snow week, too! I love snow!
I love how this project turned out…the book looks really cute too.

-THE TOOTSIE WOOTSIE 🙂
great idea, never heard of that one! Thanks so very much for sharing on Craft Schooling Sunday! Enjoy your winter, I see one doesn't even need much clothing! all the best.
Be careful, shaving cream is pretty strong stuff. It may bleach or damage your wood table.
Thank you for sharing; this looks fun! Is that equal parts by the volume of the can? (i.e. 8 oz. and 8 oz.) I’m not really sure how to measure shaving cream!
Wow, such a terrific idea!!
Just stopping by to let you know that I have featured your project on Fun Family Crafts! You can see it here
If you have other kid friendly crafts, I’d love it if you would submit them 🙂 If you would like to display a featured button on your site, you can grab one from the right side bar of your post above.
Love Snowmen at Night. My kids laugh every time we read it and the snowmen are all bent over.
I found you via playcreatexplore’s round-up. What a neat idea ! This is on our to-do list 🙂
Thanks so much for stopping by! It’s SUPER easy to do and the kids LOVE it! 🙂
Just a word of caution. I remember using shaving cream in elementary school to draw on our desks, clean our desks, etc. But after a teenager accidentally inhaled some of it during a game at a birthday party I attended and literally could not breath for a couple of minutes (it coated his trachea and he had a VERY hard time clearing it enough to be able to breathe again), I’ve been VERY leery of using shaving cream around children at all. All it would take is for a child to get it in their mouth and it might not have a very good ending.
Looking forward to trying the snowflakes. I’m thinking of adding glitter, either white or silver to the mix to see what it looks like!
What a great idea!
I’m a kindergarten teacher in search of fun new activities to do with our classes and can’t wait to try this in January along with our Snowman Unit.
Those are super cute!
It was very daunting to try to for the first time…but I did this with my Kinders today and they LOVED it!!! Will definately be one I repeat every year!!
Sara, have you found it necessary to put the shave cream and glue into the fridge overnight? Another site says it works better to do this. What is your experience or have you tried this?
Hi De – That’s interesting! I’ve actually never tried that, so I’m not sure if it’s better or not! Let me know if you try it!
this stuff is great for when children have to make diorama type projects. my grandson had to make a penguin rookery once. we put a base of randomly piled cotton balls in an oversized shoebox, then blobbed this on top as though we were icing a cake. we left a spot on the bottom of the box where he put some that had been colored blue for water. with the help of a hairdryer on low speed/warm it dried over night. he made penguins of craft pompoms for the body, felt for the feet and wings, and added google eyes. he made an A on his project.
a few yrs later, he had to make a castle with moat and again used this for assembling his structure. it looked like something out of ancient England, and again he got an A.
