Winter, yes, it’s here (and so obviously here I might add) but you know I’m okay with that because winters should be cold and there should be snow. It doesn’t mean I like shoveling and I’m certainly not a big fan of all that brown mushy stuff but hey, it’s winter.
It should come as no surprise then that I’ve got a few tricks up my sleeve to make winter a bit more bearable. If you’ve got a big pile of snow at home, why not grab some food colouring and have some fun?
Now, you know food colouring is messy. It’s supposed to be. It’s supposed to stain and it’s supposed to well, add colour to your world. Why not take some food colouring to add some fun to all that snow?
Sometimes, we take the food colouring outside and randomly decorate the snow like this:
Then, depending on inspiration, my big kid will create whatever she pleases like this:
Other times we’re a bit more product oriented and we’ll actually come up with a certain look. One time, we even decided to make our own ‘spring’ garden.
All it took was a few spray bottles and a few stencils that we happen to have at home.
The key is to have fun and give creativity an outlet to flow. Adding a bit of colour to all that snow really helps to make winter a bit more bearable and bright!
Things to do: make the most out of winter. Jazz it up, add some fun, and enjoy it before spring arrives!
