Snowball Paint Print Holiday Card Craft

kids-paint

With winter on the horizon, your kiddo is ready for a good old fashioned snowball fight. But there’s no snow. Or maybe you it’s just too cold to go outside. Celebrate the season and use paint, cotton balls and paper to create a cute winter craft. And bonus, this paint print art activity also doubles as a DIY holiday card!

Art Materials You’ll Need

  • Tempera paint
  • Card stock paper
  • Markers or crayons
  • Scissors
  • Cotton balls

How To Art-Making Steps

  1. Fold the card stock paper in half.
  2. Draw a semi-circle, starting at the fold.
  3. Cut along the line. Unfold the paper to reveal a circle snowball shape.
  4. Pour the tempera onto a thick piece of scrap cardboard, a paper plate or wax paper.
  5. Use the cotton balls as “snowballs.” Your child can gently toss them into the paint and then toss them onto the card stock paper.
  6. Let the paint dry completely.
  7. Add a special holiday message with markers or crayons on the front or back of the card stock.

Optional: Add another art-making step and use the paint-covered cotton balls as part of the craft. Attach the cotton balls to the card with clear-drying school glue. This adds an extra-festive touch to the card.
