How to create snow masterpieces

It looks like snow is on its way this week, so we’re all going to be wondering how to have fun once we’ve done the obligational snow angels, sledding, snowball fights and tubing!

One of our favorite ways to have fun in the snow is to let out some colorful creativity. As creative as you can be with snow — building snowmen, making snow fort, stomping tracks — sometimes our designs can look a little bland since everything is all white.Photo of a girl coloring snow with food coloring

To add color to your creations, you’ll need a few items:

Liquid food coloring


Squirt bottles

Fill squirt bottles with water and add 10 or so drops of food coloring in each. Adjust to the strength of color you would like and the size of your squirt bottle.

For smaller kids that would struggle squeezing a bottle, you can also mix colored water in bowls and grab turkey basters when you head outside.

Use your squirt bottles (or turkey basters) to spray (drip) paint designs in the snow, without having to worry about anything eating it!

It’s a simple activity, but we’ll bet your kids will love it!
