This time we’re making a ‘framed’ artwork and using an outdoor ‘palette’. It’s not a permanent piece that you can hang on your wall (or even the fridge, for that matter). But, you can snap a picture to keep the memory of the abstract artwork alive. If your little artist isn’t in to the whole abstract thing, let her make whatever she wants. A snow landscape, a beachy sea scene or a painting of her pet cat. Really, anything goes – as long as it’s in the snow!
Here’s What You’ll Need:
· Snow, snow and more snow
· Food coloring – Be careful, it will stain fabric. So, if you have concerns, don’t let your child try tis wearing her brand new white snowsuit (even though it’s bound to get dirty almost immediately anyway).
· Sticks or twigs
Here’s What to Do:
1. Dig a few small holes in the snow with a spoon.
2. Drip food coloring into each hole.
3. Stir the color around, mixing it with the snow.
4. Create an outline with the sticks – this will be the frame.
5. Spoon the colorful snow into the picture space. Your child can mix it, mash it, layer it or make a picture with it.
