Looking for 365 ways to nudge your children outdoors; a new way to woo a Valentine;
or planning a party? Write it in the snow!
All 3 statements were behind this little interlude this past weekend. We had the colors ready, as we were working on some new ice art that we look forward to sharing in the month ahead.
How to and Supplies:
Food coloring (or juice will work well, too)
Combine colors in the watering can or pitcher. Dress warm and hit the snow. This is preferable in deep snow and we have it this year. Just gently pour the colored water in desired pattern onto the snow or ice -- write a phrase, create art or use it as markings. I'd love to hear about your successes.
I have this technique in mind for our daughter's upcoming "snow-a-thalon" birthday party ( her party last year, click here.) We need to get our date booked and hope this snow holds. She's requested "lots and lots of snow games, skiing and/or ice skating (here and here)." Happy imaginings!
