To go along with our snow theme activities, we did some simple snowflake painting. We tried this other neat watercolor and salt snowflake painting with a glue resist technique.
Looking for another fun way to paint snowflakes? Try a salt and glue snowflake painting. A salt and glue painting makes an awesome STEAM activity and is perfect for little hands too!

Above you will see my son from 7 years ago! I will point out that snowflakes only have 6 arms but they can have little branches off of each arm as well.

SNOWFLAKE ART ACTIVITY
YOU WILL NEED:
- Canvas tiles or thick watercolor paper
- Watercolors or acrylic paint
- Painters tape
- Glitter (optional)
HOW TO MAKE TAPE RESIST SNOWFLAKES
STEP 1: Grab the materials! Make sure you have a good surface to make your snowflake artwork.
You can use simple blue painters tape or a fancier craft tape if you want to create your snowflakes. There is nothing perfect about our snowflakes except that they have six arms, not eight!
NowlLet those little hands tear the tape and design the snowflakes. You can easily make them more intricate by adding small branches off of each arm.
Generally, snowflakes are symmetrical, so you can encourage learning about symmetry while creating the snowflakes out of tape.
Make sure the tape is pressed down well before pulling out the paints. You don’t want paint going under the tape.
STEP 2: Get painting! Acrylic paints are super easy and fun for kids to use!
You can mix several colors of blue or add some white to create different shades of blue. Go ahead and cover the entire surface making sure to cover each snowflake generously.
We think all the extra brushstrokes make a fun wintery or windy effect like swirling snowflakes, so don’t worry about smoothing out every stroke!
STEP 3: If you want to add a little bit of shimmer, you can sprinkle glitter onto the wet paint!
STEP 4: Once the paint is mostly dry, carefully peel off the tape to reveal your snowflakes!
This tape resist snowflake art is the perfect winter activity for preschoolers!
