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.

What you'll need:

  • Igloo template
  • Blue construction paper
  • White crayon
  • White paint
  • Make-up applicator sponges
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Paper plate

How to make your igloo craft

  1. Trace our igloo template and cut it out. Trace the template onto blue construction paper using the white crayon.
  2. Pour white paint onto the paper plate. Dip the sponge into the paint and stamp onto the igloo. We found that one dip could make multiple blocks.
  3. Set your igloo aside to dry.
  4. Get a second sheet of blue paper and orient it horizontally. Use an applicator to paint a snowy ground.
  5. Cut small triangles out of each side of an applicator sponge to create a snowflake. Dip your cut sponge into white paint and stamp onto the blue paper to make it snow.
  6. When the igloo is dry, cut it out and glue it to the scenery.

**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.
