How fun is it to paint snowy pictures when it’s snowing outside?! We found this amazing recipe for shimmery snow paint on Growing A Jeweled Rose‘s blog! It’s super simple, made from ingredients you probably already have, puffy, super cute, and it’s cold!

Supplies Needed

  • Shaving Cream

  • White school glue

  • Peppermint extract

  • Iridescent glitter or buffalo snow


  • What makes this recipe stand out is that you have to chill the glue in the refrigerator first. Throw it in the night before you plan to make the paint, and then let it sit on the counter for about 10 minutes before you make it. 

  • Begin by combining equal parts of chilled glue and shaving cream in a bowl. 

  • Sprinkle in the glitter and/or buffalo snow (optional).

  • Add a few drops of peppermint extract for a wintery scent.

  • Then add in a little more glitter, you know, for fun!

  • Mix it all together and hand your kids a brush and paper!

  • P.S. It also dries puffy!
