Toddler activity: color painting on snow

It may be spring where you live but here, in Minnesota, we're still covered in snow. Today is April 4th and we're expecting up to 10" by noon. Spring has shown its signs for the last couple of weeks and got everybody excited but now: boom! The only one who doesn't mind it is my son as I introduced him to color painting on snow.

When my oldest  woke up from his nap last Saturday these three bottles were waiting for him to play with. I had filled them up  with water and food colors: red, blue and green. 

Painting on snow got my toddler sucked into immediately and I must say it was fun even for me. Our neighbor's kid also joined us and Victor didn't mind at all. (He's at that age when if someone else toys with his stuff a tantrum may be on its way).

Trying to stay positive: more snow means more canvas for our art. (though I would gladly give it up for chalk drawing)


  1. Ce activitate simpatica! Nu m-as fi gandit! :)))

    Dupa un inceput frumos de primavara, si la noi s-a racit... ba chiar in nord (la Suceava) si la munte a nins din nou... "Zapada mieilor" - spun oamenii! Si in Bucuresti a fost azi foarte rece si a batit vantul puternic, insa de luni se pare ca se reintoarce primavara! :) O sa-i spun sa vina si la voi de tot, sa va bucurati de ea, de soare si de pomii infloriti!

    Va pup, Stefi! Sa aveti zile frumoase, vesele si insorite!

    1. Si ai mei imi spuneau azi ca s-a facut rece si in Piatra.
      O sa vina ea si primavara intr- o zi...
      Te pup si eu Ana!
