Our friend, local artist Katherine Lampert, has a fun snowy art project for us. Keep reading to learn how to paint with snow using just water colors and food coloring.
- Watercolor paper
- Tray of some sort
- Washable liquid watercolors or food coloring
- Eye dropper or pipettes
- Empty egg carton or palette with cups
- Optional: coarse sea salt
This project is good to complete outside so that snow stays frozen while working. Spoon a little snow into each cup of your palette or egg carton.
Using an eye dropper or pipette, allow your child to add watercolors/ food coloring to the snow. Place watercolor paper on the tray.
Spoon colored snow onto watercolor paper and allow your child to mash it around, add more paint on the paper, sprinkle on optional sea salt and use the materials however they like, as long as they like.
Bring inside to let the snow melt and watch what happens when your snow painting dries!
