Splashes of color make winter white a little warmer when you do the Snowscape Stomp!
What You'll Need:
- Snow boots
- Food coloring
- Paper cups
Does it look like winter weather has put a freeze on creative fun? Think again! Grab your gloves and your paintbrushes, and that snowy hillside becomes an artist's canvas.
Mix 2 tablespoons water with 10 drops food coloring in a paper cup (make as many colors as you desire).
Go outside and march out a playful pattern of footprints in the snow. Splatter splashes of color in each frosty track, and watch the magic begin.
Be sure to check for chilly changes later as the snow begins to melt and the colors soften.
Remember that food coloring stains if it gets on clothing or light-colored boots, so be sure to wear old clothes your mom won't mind getting splattered. And don't forget to bundle up.
