Snow Painting

The next time your world turns into a winter wonderland of white, add a little color of your own by following along with this craft for snow painting -- art on a snowy canvas never looked so colorful.

What You'll Need:

  • Food coloring
  • Water
  • Old bowl
  • Paintbrushes
  • Old, warm clothing

Add about ten drops of food coloring in any shade you like to about three teaspoons of water in a bowl that it's okay to get dirty. (For each color you want to make, use one bowl.) Carry your colorful "paint" outside.

Pack a four-foot by four-foot section of snow hard and firm to make your canvas.

Now, splash that bright color onto the snow using your paintbrushes for an abstract splash. Or paint your favorite characters right on the snow.

Be sure to wear older clothes that you can dirty up, because food coloring doesn't wash out of most fabrics.

If you don't want to venture out, you can create a snow scene indoors with the Warm Fuzzy Snow project on the next page.
