Snow Angel are so pretty! I liked making them because they were fast to make. Lay down, move your arms and feet up and down, boom you have a Snow Angel.
This craft will be another one that shows up on ParentSavvy.com. It's written differently, and will have other pictures.

1: Cover your working surface to protect it. We're about to make a fun mess.
It's not too messy, but you'll want to protect your table for sure.
2: Wrinkle up a plastic bag, dip it in white, and hit your black or dark paper with it.
Let it dry. You may want a blow dryer handy. We used one quite a bit during this craft because Isaak and I couldn't wait for the next step.
Hit it up with another light color. Isaak used a French Grey. You can use any light color.
3: Get out the sticky vinyl or cheap-o shelf paper.
4: We're about to make some angels.
Roll the vinyl or shelf paper out. Draw 2 or 3 angles on there. You can use an angel cookie cutter to trace around. Isaak insisted on drawing his own.
Cut them out, and place them on the paper. Make sure the paint is dry first!
5: Add more paint on with a scrunched up plastic bag. Watch your angels disappear.
Let the paint dry.
Add another coat of another light color. This time Isaak decided on a light teal.
6: Make sure the paint is dry. Peel the shelf paper up!
That's it. It's really that simple. You can throw the angel shelf paper pieces away, or opt to keep them like Isaak did.
Here it is:
