It's officially winter.  However, living in the Canadian prairies, winter basically hits around Halloween, so we we feel like we have already been enjoying winter weather for a couple of months now.  So in the spirit of winter, here is a simple craft that's both toddler friendly and easy to make.

Materials Needed

To prepare the craft, I cut the white craft foam into circles so that the boys could make snowmen.  I also cut some snowbanks out of the white craft foam.  I then taped two pieces of clear contact paper to the kitchen table, one for J and one for K, with the sticky side up.  Then I set out some foam snowflakes and markers for the boys to use as they wished.

J quickly assembled a winter wonderland, adding details like the facial features of the snowman with markers and coloring the snow orange.  Yes, orange.  Why not?

K carefully decorated his contact paper and spent some time coloring the snow as well.

Until he got sidetracked by the stickiness of the contact paper, of course.  He giggled for quite a few minutes, watching his shirt stick to and unstick from the contact paper.

One major plus to crafting with contact paper, is that objects can be repositioned, as K demonstrates below.

Once the boys were happy with their collage, I taped them up on our living room window.  You can see it's hanging next to J's beautiful washi tape art.

And I love the silhouette of their winter scenes on the window.  So pretty!
