snow in full color.

02 February 2012

We've had snow on and off for the last couple of weeks and I've gotten fairly good at managing the ever huge pile of wet coats, gloves, hats and boots that arrive after the kids play like mad in the back garden. The radiator provides a nice drying rack, the kitchen table holds mugs for newly poured hot cocoa and the chair backs allow for coats to be tented.

And, we've now added a fab new snow toy*-- several spray bottles filled with colored water for creating designs in the snow. The collection quickly grew from one spray bottle to six and my back garden now looks like Rainbow Brite's unicorns galloped all over.

*Make your own: place a few drops of food coloring into a spray bottle, fill with cold water and screw the cap on tightly.

Excellent idea to make the snow fun. I was ready for it to go away after a day when we got hit. Wimpy Washingtonians. :)

Red, Blue, Green, Purple - yes. I discourage yellow.

I did this activity with my grandchildren yesterday. Thanks for the idea! I used red and it looked like my grandchildren bled all over the backyard. I discourage yellow and red! LOL

On the to do list. Will also be avoiding yellow. Too much of that already in my garden!
