STEP 3: Prep your cups.

Now it is time to head outdoors and get your hands on some snow! Once you've decided where you and the kids will play, scoop fresh snow into a tray.

Take the snow and scoop it in your cups. Then, put on your waterproof gloves and pack the snow down with your hands.

Now, take the bottles and squeeze out the coloured water into the cup. You can mix up this activity by using just one colour for each cup of snow or by experimenting with multiple colours.

Make sure you add enough coloured water to cover the snow towards the bottom of the cup. A great way to do this is to insert the bottle's tip into your snow cup and squirt it down towards the bottom.
