The Easter long weekend brought some warmer temperatures (finally!), which meant the snow in our backyard was starting to melt.  That also meant that the snow would be perfect for building a snowman.  Nothing beats celebrating the end of winter by building one last snowman.  My husband even suggested that we bring out the spray bottles and paint the snowman too, which was a great idea!

We painted some snow just last week by mixing water and food coloring in spray bottles (see post), so we did the same thing for this activity, just using a snowman as our canvas instead.  You could also use liquid watercolors as a substitute for food coloring.

My husband made the snowman while the boys and I played in the snow.  J already spotted the spray bottles, so once the snowman was finished, he quickly went to work.  He really enjoys painting lately.

K decided to just draw in the colored snow and give it a taste.

I love how colorful the snow can get.  Tie-dye snow, anyone?

And I absolutely love how the snowman turned out.  Of course, we added some other natural materials, like leaves and sticks, for the snowman's facial features and limbs.  It even has a mustache.  Oh, and a shovel...snowmen need shovels, right?
