A Snowman and Snow Paint…the Perfect Snow Day

Yesterday it snowed. I’m tired of the fluffy, white misery and ready for Spring. My children, however, woke up and BEGGED to go outside and play. We bundled up and headed out. It was wet. It was the perfect snow for a….

The kiddos giggled and created a great adventure…even I had a blast out there building him.

 

Every year we make a snowman and bring him to life through the magic of a photo. We record our day’s adventure with our Snowman and keep him in our “Snowy Day” photo album.

With frozen hands, I retreated inside. The children elected to stay and play. WhenLi’l Man came in for a “snack” he said his hands were cold. There was NO chance he was ready to surrender the snow play so I told him I had a surprise for them….Snow Paint:

Note: Wilton Cake Coloring Dyes work best as they produce far more vibrant colors and have a much larger selection that may appeal to your little Picasso…think Pink, Violet, Black, Browns, Crimson, and more!

We made a giant “rock” out of snow and then I spritzed the bottle. “Paint!” they cheered.
