Marshmallow Snowman Painting

This is a quick craft for kids. They'll have fun painting with a marshmallow!

You'll need:
3inch x 4 1/4 inch blue cardstock (or construction paper) and other paper scraps
white paint (tempera, craft, or acrylic)
gluestick or other glue
marshmallows (regular size) I had two for each crafter- one to eat and one to paint with. :D

Pour a small amount of paint onto a flat plate or plastic lid.
Dip the end of the marshmallow into the paint and print three big dots.
Print some more overlapping dots on the bottom edge of the paper for more snow.
While the paint dries, cut out snowman details. (I used a paper punch for the eyes.)
Glue on the details.
Add a string to the top if you want to use your snowman as a gift tag or ornament.

Make it a Wonderful Day!


  1. Fun idea! I'd have to use non-toxic paint for this because I know they'd eat the paint brush afterwards!

  2. Cute idea! I will try it with Jak if he comes for Christmas! Cute comment by
