Snowed in and out of things to do? Get your kid out of the house and into the snow for some artistic snow-painting fun.
  • Snow:
    Preferably fresh snow that hasn't been stomped into brown goopy slush yet.
  • Several clean spray bottles:
    One per color.
  • Water
  • Food coloring
  • Graffiti artist:
    Your kid.
  • 1
    Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.
  • 2
    Invite your child to mix his paints in the spray bottles. Have him fill the bottles with water and add six to 10 drops of food coloring to each one.
  • 3
    When the snow has stopped falling, but before the slush has begun forming, get your child out in the yard with his spray bottles.
  • 4
    Encourage your little graffiti artist to "paint" the snow by spraying the food coloring mixture onto the snow to create a mural. He can also spray the snow with his "tag." Just make sure you let your kid know that graffiti is for snow only!
