Snow Paint

Pin It
Last year I saw this idea for snow paint on Pinterest, but we were living in California at the time, so I put it in the back of my mind.
Well, since we moved from California I knew I wanted to try this once it snowed.
The first snowfall we had my son REALLY wanted to build a fort.
So that's what we did.
It looks smaller in the picture than it really is...
The next time we went to play in the snow my husband wanted to take my son out to play, so we made some snow paint for them.
It's SO super simple!
I found a 2-pack of these squirt bottles at Wal-mart.
Just drop in a few drops of food coloring.
Fill with water.
And paint!
We first started out only doing two colors, but that idea flew right out the window when they realized how much fun it was.
My husband and son came in multiple times asking for refills and new colors :).
The snow paint even evolved into a 'colored snowball fight'!
