Clean out empty squeeze bottles, like ketchup, mustard and other condiment bottles. Wash with a bottle brush. Dry thoroughly.
Combine equal parts of flour, salt and water together until the mixture reaches a doughy consistency. Add glitter and pour the mixture into a squeeze bottle. Squeeze the paint onto dark construction paper to make snowflakes, snow covered mountains and housetops and other scenes.
Beat together equal parts water and soap flakes with an electric mixer for another type of "snow paint." Add a small amount of white powdered tempera and liquid starch. Paint with a brush on dark colored paper.
Mix white glue and shaving cream in equal parts to create a third kind of paint. Beat with an electric mixer. Stir in white glitter. Put the mixture in squeeze bottles. Paint snowy scenes on dark paper.
Stir a small amount of sand into a jar of white acrylic paint. Add a pinch of white glitter. Apply to wood surfaces with a spatula.
