Indoor snow painting ~ bring your snow canvas indoors and stay warm and cozy!
The weather outside is frightful…so we decided to play with snow indoors. Chilly winter days are perfect for bringing the snow inside or creating beautiful melting art work. This simple indoor snow painting activity requires no bundling up in all the usual winter gear. Stay warm and cozy by bringing your snow canvas indoors!
The kids each mixed up their favorite color of paint (drops of food coloring in water). We had a combination of blue, green and purple paint. Love that all the colors coordinated.
Paint A Snow Canvas
Like with our melting art, we placed a cookie sheet inside our tray. As the snow melted, it dripped into the bottom of the tray.
I love all the colorful snow crystals.
When the kids deemed their masterpiece finished, they emptied their melting snow canvas into the sink. I should have counted how many times they each scooped a fresh layer of snow onto their tray.
They spent a good part of the afternoon playing and painting.
Squeeze bottles and spray bottles were requested for next time. Since we only used brushes and eye droppers, this activity was relatively mess free.
Here are a few of our favorite ways to stay warm while playing in the snow!
