SNOW!!!! The most favorite winter pastime is playing out in the white stuff. I wanted to share these 2 fun and colorful ways to make snow play a bit more fun and well… colorful.

Snow Fort Graffiti

Grab a couple dollar store spray bottles and put some drops of food coloring inside, and fill them with water. Then take them outside to decorate your snow forts and sculptures with bright colors!  But just remember the yellow may look a little funny.

Frozen Colored Water Balloons

Drop a few drops of food coloring into an empty latex balloon, fill with water and tie. Place filled balloons into a cake pan (in case one should burst during freezing process) and place in the freezer. Let freeze for 24 hours. After 24 hours bring outside and cut open with a scissors. Use these colorful ice globes to decorate a snow fort, use for snowman feet, or to mark your front walkway.
