We finally got around to a winter art project we’ve been dying have a go at! On a recent trip to the mountains, we decided to give snow painting a try.

 

 

The 9-year-old’s first idea was a snow rainbow…

 

 

Followed by plans to color her entire snowball fort pink… along with the creation of several pink snow angels.

 

Not to be outdone, the 5-year-old attempted to color his fort green but soon gave up and began coloring everyone’s footprints green instead.

The only supplies really needed for this project are spray bottles, food coloring and water.

You could use empty washed out/recycled spray bottles if you have them, or find some inexpensive ones at the dollar store like we did.

Literally hours of colorful fun!

That is by far a really slick and simple idea to entertain. Awesome photographs as well. Can’t wait to read some more.

We didn’t have any snow either — had to drive to the mountains for it this year.

Thanks for joining in with MMM! ;)
