My daughter’s absolutely, completely, most favourite snow activity is snow painting! As soon as it snows, she asks me to mix up some paint, and she would spend hours outside making patterns.
It’s the easiest activity ever. All you need are some squeezy bottles (I just use kids size water bottles) and food colouring. Add a few drops of food colouring to the water, shake and then pierce a hole in the lid of the bottle. Make sure you shake them before piercing the lid *ahem*.
I keep meaning to invest in some proper crafty squeezy bottles, and I will eventually, but these improvised versions work just as well!
I’m sure there are other ‘paint’ mixes you could use, and I might try a few different options the next time it snows to see how they compare. I wonder if we could get a denser, more solid colour using an alternative colouring agent… Time for some experimenting I think!
But, for the moment, the wee girl is more than happy with my quick fix.
And of course, smiley faces. She has tried this before, but this is the first time that her control of the spray from the bottles was good enough to make a recognizable face…
