Painting the snow is a fun family activity to enjoy the snow indoors when its too cold to go outside. We had so much fun with our snow sensory bin we had to play with it one more time before the end of season. 😀
What you need
- Food color
- Storage bin
- Cups & paintbrush
- Mix few drops of food color to a cup of water to make snow paint.
- Bring the snow indoors in a storage bin.
- Pull out your paintbrush and paint your heart out.
We did this activity few weeks back when it was snowing heavily. My girls love to play in the snow, but it was too cold to get outside. So we decided to bring the snow inside. It was so much fun painting the snow. Miss A(3 yrs) & Miss D(2yrs) used paint brushes to color the snow. I should tell you, it looks real pretty when the white snow is mixed in color.
D liked to use cookie cutters to shape up the snow and color it. A enjoyed scooping it up to make snow cones and ice creams and color it. She also enjoyed cutting snow cakes. We also tried making a snow tower. After a while they dumped the snow paint on to the snow and mixed it all up. We made more snow paint and played until it turned all slushy & then dumped it outside. One colorful fun evening! 😀
