Snow activities are always fun and we love painting on snow as well as making snow paint. If little toddlers and preschoolers get too cold outdoors in the snow bringing the snow indoors means they can carry on the fun in the warmth of your home (just make sure is isn't too warm or the snow will melt!)

We also have lots more winter activities for kids for you to try that are themed around snow, snowflakes and snowmen. You will love our puffy paint melted snowman craft and our DIY snow recipe (which is perfect for making snowy small worlds if you aren't lucky enough to have real snow!)

Directions for making snow paint


STEP 1: Collect snow


The first part of this snow activity involves collecting your snow! Have fun filling a small jug with snow, this could maybe be done at the end of a snowy walk? Simply fill a jug with fresh snow and bring it indoors. Add 1/2 cup of snow to each small container.

STEP 2: Add colouring to the snow


Add a drop or two of food colouring to each small container of snow and mix with a spoon. That's it, your snow paint is now ready to be used. You will need to use your snow paint straight away as the snow will melt quite quickly!

STEP 3: Paint with your homemade snow paint! 


Set out some scrap newspaper on the table and place the white cardstock on top. Use a paint brush to dip into the snow paint and begin to paint. You could paint anything that takes your fancy! A winter scene, patterns or even a rainbow!
