Colour snow

Take advantage of our snowfalls and get creative with colours. If it's too cold outside, bring some snow inside in a large container. What can you create or design with coloured snow?

Supplies

  • Water
  • Food colouring
  • Empty, clean squeeze or spray bottle of any kind

Directions

  1. Fill a spray bottle with water and add some food colouring.
  2. Spray the coloured water onto the snow to make your own designs. Can you make a game out of it? Or can you make fireworks in the snow?

Try building a snow kitchen:

  1. Design your kitchen in any shape you want.
  2. Use household items to stock or decorate your kitchen
  • Some materials you could use:
    • Pots and pans
    • Spoons, ladles
    • Sieves, colanders
    • Shovels
    • Small plastic containers
    • Pie and muffin pans
    • Teacups
    • Kitchen utensils
    • Pom poms, caps
    • Food coloring

Try going on a nature walk and see what you can find to “cook”. Think big – snow can be formed into whatever you want.
