My Kindergartener asked for two things: watercolors and snowmen.
Yep. We can do this. Order in and processed! Simple watercolor snowmen at your service.
This idea is an easy painting activity that you can hang on the fridge to take you right into the new year. Wait – is it SERIOUSLY almost the new year?!
Watercolors invite art into our day without a lot of prep work and cleanup.
It is an easy five-minute prep time for a long-lasting painting session.

I trace a few circles, and the rest is up to my Kindergartener.
My six-year-old didn’t ask for any directions from me.
I was simply there to hang out, and it couldn’t have been a better way to connect after a long school day.
Even better! This simple winter art activity works well for all ages. Begin with one snowman and watch where the idea takes you!
When he finishes the painting, we hang it on his bedroom door. He will be ready to recycle it and add something new in spring. (wink, wink)
