Our snow is not white!

The playground is so much fun covered in snow. 

One of our favorite things to do after we’ve enjoyed the new fallen snow and it starts to get packed down, is to add some color.

We fill spray bottles with watered down liquid water color and pass them out to the children.

They have a ball spraying the snow and looking at all of the different colors on the ground. 
Then they get creative…

Today a few girls made a beautifully decorated birthday cake for a friend.

Some other children were busy putting their scientific minds to work as they watched the effects of the spray of water on the fence, through the fence, down the slide

and on the rocks.

Simple spray bottles and some color add so many learning opportunities to our outdoor snow-covered classroom. 

Grab some and go play!
