Children's Book Club // Snow Paint {Snowmen at Night}

I'm joining Jess to host Children's Book Club and have Amy's big shoes to fill so wish me luck! 

For those of you who don't know the premise of Children's Book Club it is a monthly link up where we share a book and some ideas for crafts, snacks, art, math etc to fully engage with your child(ren) and then we come back here and  share what we did! Then the next month's book is announced and we do it all over again! There is no set activity and the additional activities are just ideas to spark creativity and learning. Let's get started!
Children's Book Club // Snow Paint {Snowmen at Night}
January's book is Snowmen at Night by Caralyn Buehner and illustrated by Mark Beuhner. This was a new-to-me author and I love that it is a husband and wife team (reminded me of James and Audrey Woods when they were together.) The neat thing about Snowmen was the hidden pictures in each page- a Santa Face, a cat, a dinosaur and a bunny camouflaged throughout the story! Did you see them?

After spending way too much time searching every page for the hidden pictures I whipped up some Snow Paint for the girls.

This paint uses only three ingredients- salt, flour and water in equal parts. It looks like thick pancake batter but when it dries it looks like glittering snow! Er, I could be wrong about it since the last time I saw snow was in 2006 but it  is a neat sensory experience. And clean up is easy too.

  2. Love the snow paint idea! We could definitely use that while we are cooped up inside most of the winter.

    Thanks for filling in for me! XO!

  3. I am always thinking I should join in but we only go to the library during the summer. Isn't that pitiful?! Looks like y'all had a blast.

  10. Our elf brought Snowmen At Night while he visited, and it's one of our favorites to read while it's here!
    The painting with "snow" is an awesome idea! I know Marcus would love it. We had a little snow experiment a few days ago and he really enjoyed it, so I'm positive this would be a hit. Plus. I'm al about anything with easy clean up!
