Today we have a way to unleash the creativity of the whole family, and for young children it is a chance to try out mark-making, creating works of art and experimenting with shapes
Snow can be lovely at first, but it can quickly get a bit patchy and tired.
By using coloured water to draw on the snow, children are also playing with ideas about “how much”, “how far” and also practising making plans
It will probably also be quite a laugh – try not to mind if it gets rather silly too.
Or if you’ve still got lots of fresh snow, why not make a snowman, a snow dog, a nice snow-anything!
