You don't need snow to create a snowstorm -- all you need is a little starch or glue, some rice and a shake of the hand to create your own dazzling winter wonderland!
What You'll Need:
- Dark construction paper (black is best)
- Markers or crayons
- Liquid starch or glue
- Paintbrush or cotton swabs
- Uncooked rice
Love the winter weather, even when it's too cold outside to play? Well, make a winter project in your warm house that expresses how much you love the snow!
Draw a winter scene on the construction paper. Do you like sledding or building snow creatures? Then draw that! A pretty cabin in the woods with smoke curling out of the chimney would also make a pretty picture. Create whatever scene you'd like.
When you are done drawing and coloring your picture, brush a generous amount of starch or glue over your picture on the construction paper.
Sprinkle the rice over the glue on the paper. Shake off the excess rice and discard. (Don't put the rice back in the package -- you won't want to be eating starched or glued rice for dinner!)
Now watch out for the blizzard!
