It's been snowing like crazy here but it wasn't the right kind of snow to make a snowman so instead we made one inside.

This is an easy but really cool painting project that kids of all ages can participate in.

You will need some contact paper, white construction paper, water colors and brush, scissors, a star paper punch and some salt!

Start by drawing an outline of a snowman on your contact paper and cutting it out. Peel it off and place on your construction paper.

Cut out stars - he was trying so hard. Contact paper is tough to cut.

Add the stars to the paper.

Paint! My son loved the different feel to painting on and off the contact paper.

Add salt

Let dry - you can peel the contact paper off or leave it on.
