Painting in the Snow


Snowy day
empty spray bottles
food coloring


1. Ask the children what color snow is.
2. After everyone yells white, ask if they have ever seen blue snow. What about red snow, or green?
3. Provide each child with an empty spray bottle. (Or, ask them to bring one in from home.)
4. Let each child choose what color she wants her snow to be. Mix water and food coloring for each bottle.
5. Have the children bundle up and go out to "paint" the snow. Challenge them to spray a circle, a square, or their names.
