paper snowmen

Create a snow scene with ingredients from the kitchen.

What You Need

  • Piece of dark poster board or construction paper
  • Crayons
  • Ice cube
  • Mittens (optional)
  • Newspaper
  • Salt shaker full of salt
  • Scissors

What You Do

  1. Prepare Tabletop
    First, prepare your tabletop by covering it with newspaper. Choose a dark piece of paper to work with (poster board or construction paper).
  2. Rub Ice on Paper
    Give your child an ice cube to rub all over the paper. He/she may want to put on mittens for this step.
  3. Shake Salt on Paper
    Next, give your child a salt shaker full of salt (large grained salt shows up better) and let him/her shake it over the wet paper. The salt should melt and stick to the paper.
  4. Decorate Paper
    Be creative! Cut your paper into different shapes and/or decorate with crayons before you get it wet.
