Snow: A Great Blank Canvas.
It was a whopping 45 degrees here today and sunny- practically spring! Except our yard is covered in feet of snow. So we did the only thing that made sense- we gave our snow a little spring color- and spray-dyed a rainbow. It's a fun and unusual (dare I say funusual?) snow activity and, more important, easy! It's also a great way for kids to learn about mixing colors in a nontraditional way.
Here's what you do:
Get 3 clean and empty spray bottles- old cleaning bottles or plant spray bottles.
Add some water and several drops of food coloring. Red in one, yellow in another, blue in the last.
Go to town on that white canvas- SNOW!!!
