Here is a fun wintery themed art project that we did last week. I put out blue construction paper, white paint, and silver glitter for Simon to have fun with. My idea in setting this up was to make “snow paintings”, and I explained to him how the white and the sparkles would look like glittery snow.

He enjoyed painting, but his favorite part was sprinkling the glitter, and he got really excited about shaking it from the tube. He also got very creative with this project, at one point figuring out that if he dipped the bottom of the glitter tube in the paint, he could stamp circles onto the paper. He also began using his hands instead of the paintbrush, and discovered the way the glitter made the paint feel gritty between his fingers. This added a fun sensory element to the project.

Simon had such a blast with this, that we will definitely be breaking out more glitter soon!
