Snowman Painted Rock Craft

Today I am sharing a fun Snowman Painted Rock based on the book, The Snowman by Raymond Briggs. I remember watching The Snowman on tv each year as a child and listening to the iconic song, “walking in the air”. Watching The Snowman movie each Christmas has become a family tradition for Sylvia and I and last year when we found The Snowman book in a local charity store we purchased it for only 10p. The book is a favourite of my daughter’s and she enjoys reading it regular.

What You Will Need

To have some fun based on the book I decided to paint The Snowman using Posca pens, a pencil and a small rock stone.

Let’s Make It

 

I started by drawing the Snowman outline with the hard lead pencil.

I then used the basic colours, white, orange and green to fill the outline of The Snowman painted rock.

I used Silver paint to add detail to the scarf and to the coal button.

I then traced the outline with black paint to give more detailing to the stone.

I am really pleased with the final stone. This is my first Christmas themed stone and it came out really well. This is something you could do with the kids, rock painting based on a book.

Doing activities based on children’s books is a fantastic way to boost their interest in reading and literacy. I hope you like this painted rock.
