|It’s been fun to play a bit with paint on day 16 of our Blank Christmas Cards Advent Countdown with Kids!Creating a winter scene with Q-tips is an awesome pre-writing fine motor skill activity and even 2 year old toddlers can enjoy playing with it. Final result might be a little bit abstract but snow scenes as they are in nature can appear a bit messy as well!
Of course, this and any other art activity including paint with toddlers should be closely supervised by parents or other adults.

Things we used for today’s card are:
Put a paint on a plate and add q-tip. Just let child play around with paint creating snowflakes and snow. As you can see on a picture, my toddler’s snowman looks like wind blow it off a bit. Very cute! When they are done, and it dries, add details with markers – nose, eyes, mouth, buttons and a little scarf! Done!
