It is bitterly cold here this winter, so as we waited out the current snow storm we decided to make an igloo craft. A make-up applicator sponge is a fantastic craft tool, and when dipped in paint it creates the perfect brick shapes to help create our igloo craft. Even better is that the sponges can be cut into snowflakes. This igloo craft is a great winter craft and would also be perfect for an "I craft" for a letter of the week lesson.

How to make your igloo craft
**Note: We did the igloo and the scenery in two separate steps because we were "toddler-proofing" the craft. This way in case "stamping the blocks" turned into more of a "smearing of white paint everywhere", the shape of the igloo could still be cut out and applied to the background. While we believe that children's crafts do not have to be perfect, our younger daughter likes to have her finished product match her older sister's finished product to some extent. Increasing the odds of the craft's success this way also encourages her to follow the steps a bit more in future crafts, which is a skill that is emphasized when toddlers enter preschool.
