Snow Painting

Winter doldrums got you down?
Craving some color to brighten your world?
Looking for something fun for you and your cooped up kiddos to do?

Snow Painting

We took a variety of empty, discarded spray & squirt bottles 
(that were headed for the recycle bin),
cleaned them out thoroughly,
filled them with a few good squeezes of food coloring
added warm water to the concentrated dye
and went out in the yard for an afternoon of fun!

Our makeshift caddy of snow sprays!

Spritzing and spraying
the fresh fallen snow

making the most beautiful hues of the rainbow :)

and writing sweet and funny messages to each other!

So if you live in snow country,
the next time you get a fresh batch of the white stuff,
grab those empty spray bottles,
add some food colorings 
have fun
