Cotton Ball Painted Snowman

The snowman theme is a favorite for me for the winter. We are always doing something with snowmen. It is a totally fun activity that many different ages can do.

Today I have a cotton ball painted snowman. This is a fun painting activity that kids can be creative with. There is no wrong or right way to do this.

Plus this is using different items like cotton balls and q-tips for the paint! You get some fine motor work in while painting.

We love all the different snowman books. But our favorite has been There Was a Cold Lady Who Swallowed Some Snow!. We could read and laugh about it a lot! We had fun revisiting this book again for this painting activity.

How to make the Cotton Bal Painted Snowman

You start off by drawing circles on the paper. We used three sizes of cookie cutters for this. If you have younger kids doing the painting you have the circles already drawn for them.

They trace the inside of the circles.

When you are done the circles might look like this. You can see that the biggest at the bottom and the smallest at the top.

Then you use the cotton ball in a clothespin to paint the snowman. You paint however much you want to fill in the circles.

You could also just paint inside the cookie cutters to make the snowman if you are looking for something different.

After you finish the snowman you add some snow below the snowman to make the ground.

Then you use a q-tip and black paint to paint stick arms. This is fun because everyone can have their own idea of what stick arms on snowman are.
