Snow Painting

Art in the Snow

It seems like everyone is getting their share of wintry weather this year! But, for kids, snow and ice are no excuse to stay inside. There are countless winter activities to get their hearts pumping outdoors, but here's an idea that will get their creative juices flowing as well!

On a day when the snow surface has a nice smooth crust, try snow painting. All you need to do is bring some pots of Washable Tempera paint and brushes outside. Your canvas can be as big as your yard, or you can keep the painting contained by making a frame using sticks. As the sun slowly melts the snow, watch as the colors blend, creating fascinating and unpredictable effects.
