:: Snow Spray Painting ::



Snow painting is a really fun winter activity for kids.{And grown up kids too!} Actually, the whole neighborhood really gets into it. Besides, it's a unique way to nurture artistic talent or introduce kids to the joy of an artistic creation. 
I think everyone will love the chance to explore a new medium to create their art. And if you or your kids aren't especially artistic, won't matter, you will still have fun. Snow painting is easy, requires very little preparation and it's an activity that the whole family can do together.

What You Need:
  • Snow!
  • Food coloring
  • Spray bottles

Here's How:
  1. Gather Necessary Items
    At the very least you need yellow, red, and blue food coloring, and three spray bottles. If you want to do more than paint with spray colors, you may also want to gather some plastic bowls and brushes.
  2. Prepare the Spray Bottles
    Fill the spray bottles with cold water. (Hot and even warm water could melt the snow too much.) Add a few drops of food coloring to the bottles so that you have one bottle of red, one of blue, and one of yellow water. Be sure that the bottles have enough coloring in them to make the colors visible once they are sprayed on the snow. (You may need to test the colors the first time you mix them.) Although you need only three colors, you can have more if you want them.
  3. Get outside and Paint!
    All you will need are your spray bottles -- and your imaginations and creativity. Experiment with how the spray bottles work and test the way the colors mix to create other colors. You may also want to create artistic abstract designs or maybe create a simple drawing.
  4. Take Pictures!
    This is really an optional step, but you're sure to want pictures of the fun and the masterpieces created as well as some pictures of how they were created.
With as fast as things are warming up around here hard telling if you'll get the chance to do this. It's supposed to be 60-70 degrees here this week. Which is absolutely crazy. One week it's below zero, the next week it turns this warm? Whatever. I'll take it.
