Blizzard Paint

I loved making snowmen as a child. Ok, you got me… I still love it. I am not going to lie though… I would get pretty sad when the sun would come out and melt my hard work and frozen friend.

Last year I took Sprinkles (my pet unicorn) out to build her first snowman. It was fabulous. I am pretty sure we spent a full two hours perfectly crafty and styling him. The next morning we came out to find a puddle, with a hat and scarf sitting in the middle. I think a squirrel may have eaten his carrot nose. Sprinkles was devastated. I guess I didn’t give her enough warning on what happens to snowmen. All of a sudden she pointed her horn at the ground and zapped it. It turned into a sparkly foamy substance. “It’s Blizzard Paint.” she said. Boom.

 Now your little ones can make snowmen and flakes that won’t melt! Thank you, Sprinkles. She gave me a recipe for human to use (since we don;t have magical horns). You should totally give it a try!

Here’s what you’ll need:

– Barbasol Shaving Cream

– Elmer’s White Glue

– Peppermint Oil or Extract

– Iridescent Glitter

Let’s get started…

1. Squeeze some of your Elmer’s Glue into a bowl.


2. Add an equal amount of Barbasol Shaving Cream into the blow with the glue.


3. Add a few drops of your peppermint oil or extract.

4. Mix together until you are able to form little “peaks’ with your paint.

5. Add glitter and have fun painting!

Here are some of the creations that Sprinkles and I made with our Blizzard Paint :) We used little knick knacks like pompoms and googly eyes to help our snowmen come life.
