Today's challenge is a snowflake art! This craft was really easy for my 3 year old and 20 month old to do!


One lucky member who participates in today's activity will receive a CafeMom Tote Bag!

Materials Needed:
 Paint or crayons
 Paper brush
 Paper or canvas
 Tape

I started by taping a snowflake shape on paper (the next time my kids do this, I'm going to use canvas).

I handed my kids paint brushes and they got to work!

I didn't wait for the paint to be totally dry before I started pulling off the tape, but I should have.What I really like about this project is it was really easy for my kids to do together.


How often do you have your kids paint pictures? Are they pretty clean about painting or do they still make a huge mess?

We paint all the time and it's a HUGE mess, but the fun is worth it.

This is cute :).  And just for ppl to know who do this project.  Sandy Hook Elem. is looking for as many snowflakes as possible to turn thier school into a Winter Wonderland for when the children return.  Just a thought :)

Wouldn't the tape rip the paper when you pull it off?

Neat idea. My youngest loves to paint and will paint every day.

That's a cute project! My 3 year old is pretty good at not making a big mess when she paints and I haven't even tried painting with my 15 month old.
