Ok, so like most things, this craft started with what I thought was a WONDERFUL idea. We had a wonderful response to our tactile spider web craft, so I thought that we would take this idea and make a winter scene.
The craft didn’t turn out as a well as I would have hoped, but E had a great time with it, so I guess we can call it a success!
For this craft you’ll need:
- One piece of blue construction paper
- a glue gun
- white paint
- paintbrush (Optional)
- 2 cotton balls
- some wintery stickers (think snowflakes!)
Before getting your kiddo to the table, “draw” a tree with no leaves with the glue gun on the construction paper. Once its dry put it front of your kiddo and them paint “snow” on the tree and the ground. E is on a real paintbrush kick right now, but you could certainly let your tot paint with finger paint.They can also put some in the sky, like E was inspired to do.
Next take the cotton balls and stretch them out to where they are wispy. Put some white glue around the bottom of the tree and put the cotton on to make snowy ground.
To add a little punch let your kiddo place some snowflake stickers around the page.

Great use of the glue gun. I would have never thought to use it in that way.
I really like the Wintery scene and thought it turned out great! I will be doing this craft with five preschoolers tomorrow. Thanks for the great idea.
