    If you have pipe cleaners available, my kids made cute pipe cleaner wreaths last week. I got them from marthastewart.com

    Put glitter on pinecones. Make a Christmas ornament out of a walnut shell.

    Texture paint snowmen on construction paper. Use differently textured items to show different texture.

    Shaving Cream Snow Painting


    Materials Needed:
    · Shaving cream (foam)
    · White glue
    · Construction paper
    · Food coloring (optional)
    · Small plastic bowl (one per color)
    · Small paintbrush (or Q-tips)

    What to do:

    Step One: If you'd like your snow painting to have color, mix a small amount of glue with a drop of food coloring in a plastic bowl. If you'd like your painting to appear white, do not add any food coloring to the glue.

    Step Two: Add an equal amount of shaving cream to the colored glue.

    Step Three: Make a new mixture for each color you'd like to paint.

    Step Four: Use the paintbrush or a Q-tip to paint pictures with the shaving cream on a piece of construction paper.

    Step Five: Let the picture dry.

    When the picture has dried, the shaving cream will be puffy -- just like real snow!
