Scoop up some snow and make art where the process is more important than the product.

By: Andrea Mulder-Slater

Snow Day!

Playing in the snow can be fun – for a while – but what do you do when your yard is already full of snow angels and you just can’t bring yourself to help your kids make one more snowman?

You get creative and make snow art.

This would be a fun activity not only at home but in the classroom as well.

What You Need:

  • Snow
  • Watercolour paints (or food colouring)
  • Water in cups (to rinse your brush and add water to the paints)
  • Trays or pans
  • Paintbrushes
  • Towels

What You Do:

Simply gather some snow and place it in a pan or tray. Aluminum foil pie plates are perfect.

Then, make a snowscape by painting with watercolour paints directly on the snow. Treat the snow as if it was paper, dipping your paintbrush into water before choosing a paint colour, and rinsing your brush in between colour choices.

This is a serious amount of sensory fun.

Remember to take pictures because these works of art are temporary.

And, if you have enough snow left over, you can also create mini sculptures and watch them melt away.
