Cute And Easy Winter Art Projects For Kids
Winter often means more indoor time, which makes it a great time for art projects. These two snowman and polar bear painting projects are adorable projects that my kids learned how to make at school. If you live somewhere where you actually get snow, be sure to give this icicle painting activity a try, too! It’s one of our favorites, but we don’t have much opportunity to enjoy it since we moved to California.
Snowman Winter Art Projects for Kids
Both Johnny and Lily made these snowmen as art projects in second grade. Johnny recognized the project from last year when Lily brought hers home this year! It’s fun to have two samples to see different ways you can make these snowmen.

- Blue art paper
- White and black paint
