Today we got a lot of snow and the kids were SO excited!

We decided to spray paint the snow

Have fun PAINTING the snow!- INSIDE!    Our kids LOVED this!

Fill up spray bottles with water and food coloring (about 10 drops).

The kids took their spray bottles and went outside to paint the snow.  After a few minutes, they were ready to come back inside, but they didn’t want to stop playing.
(Now that we live in NC, we don’t have that warm winter gear that we had when we lived in PA.)

This is also a great science activity because they can see how to blend colors to make new ones!
