Today we got a lot of snow and the kids were SO excited!
We decided to spray paint the snow
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.)
So~ we took my friend’s advice and brought the snow indoors! (Thanks, Kristy!)
- We got the buckets from our Water & Sand Table (see how to make one). Just scoop up the snow and bring it in!
- Set it in your kitchen sink or in your bath tub.
- PLAY! You can paint the snow, scoop it, put toys into it. Whatever you want to do!
This is also a great science activity because they can see how to blend colors to make new ones!
We ended the day by making Snow Ice Cream (5 cups snow, 1 c. sugar, 1 T vanilla, 1-2 cups milk (depending on consistency) – eat immediately.
