Painting With Snow

I always say if we have to be cooped up inside due to freezing cold temperatures, at least give us some pretty, fresh fallen snow to look at. Thankfully, we had a little bit of this last week so I scooped some of it up and brought it inside for an art project.

The snow was PERFECT. It was so light, fluffy, and easy to work with. All I did for this activity was put a little bit of snow in 3 separate little containers and mixed in some food coloring. I found that more snow in the container to start with was better because as I mixed in the food coloring, the amount of snow in the container became less.

I used this gel food coloring that I had because the colors are brighter and more vibrant than the regular liquid food coloring that we have. I did about 2-3 drops which was probably more than enough! Ideally, I would have used some large, white craft paper or a big white poster board just for Kade to have more surface area to work with, BUT we didn't have either of those. Instead, I got creative and taped together 4 pieces of cardstock. I also taped it to our table so it didn't slide around as he was painting. Halfway through, I flipped it so that he had fresh white space to work with. We ended up with 4 separate pieces of art work!

I was absolutely amazed with how pretty the colors turned out together and how the snow melted as he painted with it. The paint had such a pretty swirled look to it. Kade painted with the snow on and off for about 20-30 minutes. He really enjoyed it!
