This is something fun to do with your children (or yourself) in the winter. It will keep you entertained during those snow days off of school or work. You could even have an art expo in the neighborhood. I saw this in MetroParent magazine.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 16 ounces water
  • 3 -5 drops food coloring


  1. Fill a spray bottle with some water.
  2. Add a few drops of food coloring.
  3. Stir or shake until mixed.
  4. Go spray the snow to your heart's content.

Made this for niece and nephew a few years ago. The kids LOVE it. They painted a whole snow drift and even the neighbors told their parents how cool it was.
