Living in a frozen Tundra is hard! We live in such a beautiful part of the country. Who doesn't love snow for the holidays? We love crafting with our little boy but, we can only build so many snow men & have so many snowball fights before we get bored! I recently combed the Web for a new way to pass the time. Here are my 3 favorites! You can still play in the snow to your heart's content! My favorite part was that all 3 use color!

"What you need

2 spoonfuls of baking soda (bicarbonate of soda )
1 spoonful washing up liquid
a few drops of red food coloring
30 ml vinegar


Add everything except the vinegar to the water bottle.
Stand back, get ready……add the vinegar and watch the eruption! If it doesn’t work so well, add a bit more washing up liquid and vinegar."

"Snow Jewels Materials
Food coloring or liquid watercolors
Add a few drops of food coloring or watercolors to regular party balloons and fill them up with water.  Tie them and place them in the freezer for 4-6 hours.  Once frozen snip the balloon and remove it.  Then head on outside to PLAY!"

"Traditional Squirty Snow Paint 
Food coloring or liquid watercolors
Water Squirt bottles
Mix a few drops of food coloring or watercolors with water in squirt bottles.  
Easy peasy and SO FUN!

Scented Squirty Snow Paint
Kool-aid packets
Water Squirt bottles
Add one packet of Kool-aid into each squirt bottle and fill with water.   This scented paint is easy to make, vibrant, and smells AMAZING!  Either way that you make it the kids are sure to have a blast!"

There you have it lovelies! A cheap, inexpensive way to have tons of fun the next time you have the chance to play in the snow!
