I am a stay at home mom, and am always looking for something to do with the kids. We have had to come up with many different modes of entertainment from reading nooks in different areas of our house to picnics in the family room. Wisconsin has been incredibly cold lately, and it makes staying home a little harder. Don’t get me wrong, I love being home but the kids are getting a little case of cabin fever.
A friend of mine posted a picture of her daughter on facebook, painting the snow with watercolors. I saw the picture and immediately put snow on a baking sheet and sat my daughter and nephew down to paint. They absolutely loved it. My daughter painted for a full hour (she is 3 1/2 years old) and my nephew (who is 2 1/2 years old) played for at least 30 minutes! Win for me.
All you need is snow, which is pretty easy to come by at least in midwest and some watercolor paints.
