Snow Paint ~ Snow and Ice Part 4

This activity is not herbal or even scientific, what it is, is just plain fun!  Plus it is a great way to get the kids outside on a snowy, cold day while bringing out the little Picasso inside.


Materials ~ 

  • plastic spray bottles
  • food coloring
  • cold water

How To ~

The set up couldn’t be easier.  Simply fill a few spray bottes with cold water and then add food coloring.  Let the kids watch.  The drops of food coloring swirling into the water always insights happy “ooh’s and ahh’s.”

Then take the kids outside and let them get creative.  You might want to instruct the kids only to spray the snow especially if you are working with a group of children otherwise you might have art in unwanted places.

We did this activity a few weeks ago at the preschool and started out our day with an Ice Cube Experiment and setting up the Big Block Of Ice Experiment and as usual it was great fun being scientists for the day and watching to see if our predictions came true.

We also read The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats

which inspired the kids to get outside and explore the snowy landscape.
