"painting" in the snow

We are on day three of snow here, this is the second day of school being canceled.  Things are supposed to warm up to 45 degrees starting tomorrow and all of the snow will be long gone.  So we decided to take the beautiful white canvas of the back yard, and add a little COLOR to it. 

All you need to do this is:
- spray bottles
- water
- food coloring

Fill the spray bottle with water, add food color and let them go to town!

  This was a big hit with the kids and they played outside happily for quite a long time. 

Happy snow day!

  1. What a fun idea! Hmm... I don't forsee any snowdays anytime (or ever) here in the San Fran Bay but it makes me want a winter wonderland of my own!

  2. I LOVE this idea! I will have to do this with the kids once we get some snow, if we ever get snow this year.
