Confetti Snow Picture

While we were using the hole punch today to make our paper snowflakes we noticed the confetti it produced looked a lot like snow. At this time of the year how could we let that go to waste! :-)


* thick cardboard (we used a sheet of corrugated card)
* scissors
* clear contact
* white confetti/holepunch and white paper
* coloured paper
* textas/markers

We collected some of the 'confetti' from the base of the hole punch to use as snow in our picture.

I cut the centre from some corrugated cardboard to create a frame and then backed it with clear contact with the sticky side facing out.

In this photo you can see how it is secured - I cut the contact slightly larger than the square in the cardboard sheet, then adhered it to the back around the frame edges so that the sticky surface faced to the front.

I cut some shapes from coloured paper and Bubble stuck them to the contact to create her picture. This is her drawing a face on her snowman :-)

Now for a door on her little house.

Once the picture was finished Bubble added her snow, it was a fantastic activity for concentration and fine motor co ordination.

Having a go with some craft tweezers.

  1. That looks like so much fun. Could be done at any time of year with different themes too. Thank you for the inspiration.

  2. Very fun. Love the idea of doing this activity with my boys. Doing snow pictures is as close as they will get to snow. Colleen:)

  3. Visiting from We Play. This is a very beautiful project, especially with a pretty frame around it. I think some glitter snow would have looked nice too.

  4. Marita - love the idea of different themes, we a great decoration or party project for certain times of the year.

    Colleen - same here! Wouldn't it be nice to have a white Christmas, although I do enjoy the beautiful warm weather at this time of year too. Hope your boys have a ball x

    Raising A Happy Child - fabulous idea using glitter, that would look great especially once it's hung up in the window!
