2. Shake some glitter into the bowl (white or silver works well for the snow look).

3. Add 1 drop peppermint essential oil. It makes it smell better than glue and shaving cream, and gives it a wintry scent. Completely optional.

4. Lightly stir it all together with a spoon.

5. Have fun! Use a paintbrush to design a snowman on paper, or give your kiddo a spoon and let her have a sensory blast! My daughter loved just squeezing it between her fingers for a good 20 mins.

6. Spoon the snow paint into a baggie when play is over. I used a second baggie to make sure it was well contained. I hid a few little toys inside for my daughter to find. She loved squeezing it through the plastic bags and searching for Nemo and Dino that were inside swimming around. Sensory blast for a 3 year old!
