Snow Painting

Kids will enjoy using spray bottles to paint on snow.

Fill a few spray bottles with a few drops of food coloring and water. Bring in a pan of fresh snow and let the kids spray paint on snow. Talk about how the colors blend to make new colors and what happens when the colored mixture hits the snow. This activity is a fun art and science project rolled into one.

If you're hosting Thanksgiving at your house, have them make namecards for everyone that is comimg to your house.  Also, they could make other decorations for the Thanksgiving table.
