Free Family Fun: Snow painting!

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.

Step 1

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.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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
Have fun!!!
