Snow Painting

We all make snowmen which is great fun but how about ringing the changes and making a different character?  What about a snow-dog, a snow-dragon, a snow-penguin, a snow-teddy or even a snow-mummy or daddy! The possibilities are endless!

We’ve been busy in the garden making a snow cat that Biscuit and Crumb decided to call Tabitha. We painted her with simple poster paint but mixed up powder paint would work just as well too.

The children loved how it brought their character to life. Say hello to Tabitha the Snowcat, our new pet.

We’d love it if you’d leave a comment to tell us all about your snow creations too.

      Thanks Glenda. I’m really hoping for lots more snow, the smalls want to try making an igloo next!

  7. Bagpuss surely? Brilliant idea :-)

    • Emma (My Little 3 and Me) says:

      Miaow! He’s certainly looking a bit floppy this morning, it must have rained a little in the night. :-(

  8. Oh that is amazing – I love it! We haven’t had much snow yet, but I am still living in hope, thanks so much for adding this to the outdoor play link & I’m looking forward to exploring your blog today :) Kierna

  9. ooooh that is fab! We used some food colouring on ours!

  10. My kids are now asking me to make a snow cat having seen this! Epic!

  11. That is amazing!!! I love it! Thanks for linking up! Fab!!! x

  12. An inspired work of art! Who’s idea was that one? Wins best snowman / cat without a doubt! Thank you for joining in with #CountryKids

    • Emma (My Little 3 and Me) says:

      It’s lovely that you’ve dropped by to say you like it, thankyou. The boys have been so excited reading people’s reactions, they feel really proud. We’ve been snow painting for years, my mum started it off when I was young! x

  13. This looks fab. We wanted to do food colouring but I only had green, and we did not have enough snow to make any kind of animal unless it was very very small!


  14. That’s awesome, really makes a difference from the regular snowman! Thanks for sharing at the Outdoor Play Party

  15. Love Tabitha and why have I never thought of painting the snow???

  16. That is fantastic! So much fun. I bet your children will remember that for a long time to come. We just have a rather large snowman who is currently wearing my hat and scarf.

    • Emma (My Little 3 and Me) says:

      I remember doing snow painting with my mum so I hope my boys will remember it too. Your snowman sounds lovely, I bet your little one thinks it’s lovely.

  17. Hi Emma, just to let you know that I’m featuring your snow cat on the Outdoor Play Party tomorrow. Feel free to grab a featured button from my site. Cheers Hannah

  18. Adorable! I love it.
