I was just out shoveling…boring. Then inspiration struck. I thought to myself, “I bet someone is going to make a snow sculpture of Nemo,” since this blizzard has been named Nemo. Then I was like, “No, I’m going to build a Nemo snowman and paint it!”
As a stocking stuffer, my mom bought my boys snow paint, so I was on-board with using this. However, when I went in to get my camera I realized, oh fudge, we only have blue and green paint.
Then I scrambled to my pantry where I had just organized. Wha-la, I pulled out my red (AKA Tropical Punch) Kool-Aid packet. You may remember this from the toothpick dyeing project I did.
Same thing, except you need a spray bottle.
Fill a small spray bottle with water and Kool-Aid. You’ll need the Kool-Aid packets that don’t have sugar added, that way the dye is concentrated.
Add water. I used only one packet with about 10oz of water. This is honestly way too much, but my kids will have fun with it when they get home from school.
Tip: Keep in mind you want the water to be really cold so you don’t melt your snow sculpture when you paint it.
Twist the spray nozzle to “stream” to make lines and “spray” to fill them in.
It’s so much fun and smells good, too!
I used a rock for the eye, which was not easy to find under a foot of snow : 0
