Anyway...pack down the weirdness, and back to snow art.
To set up the art supplies for my girls, I poured colored sand into squeeze bottles, the kind with a pretty wide spout--
--and filled spritz bottles with liquid watercolor; the last time we did snow paint, I used food coloring and water, but I am vastly enamored with the vivid colors of liquid watercolors. I do need to buy more spray bottles, however, because the little spritz bottles that I usually use to make watercolor spray paint are difficult for kids in gloves to operate (although they do make the fingers of their gloves look bright like crayons!)
All the supplies that we used look great on snow:
liquid watercolor spray paint
How fun is that?
In the break between snows (because of course there will be more snow this winter), I think that I'm going to try some better-late-than-never lasagna garden prep for the Spring.
There will be MORE flowers to sniff! MORE basil to watch! Definitely MORE weeding to do!
