Homemade Snow Paint Recipe

We are preparing to get another round of snow. While I love it on one hand since it’s peaceful and forces us to be at home. On the other hand, our boys are all driving now and have jobs and I get really nervous about them driving when the roads are bad. Snow is one thing but ice is an entirely different story – YIKES!!

I remember when they were little and we would sled at our old house on our very small hill. They thought it was massive at the time, but going past the house now I wonder how we even managed to get any momentum going down that tiny hill! The snow days were always fun for snowmen, obviously, snowball fights, sledding and this snow paint would have been fun to have as well!

Enter the question I ask myself regularly nowadays “Where was this when my kids were little?!”

If you’re snowed in, enjoy some time in the snow with your littles and play some games in the snow! It’s a fun way to let them get their energy out and it also gives you a reason to make this homemade hot chocolate recipe along with these homemade marshmallows. Yes, both are a bit “extra” but what I wouldn’t give to have that time back again!

What is Snow Paint?

Think of snow paint like chalk for sidewalks but it’s for snow. The snow paint can be made a number of ways, but this DIY uses what you most likely already have around the house especially if you’ve been making colorful icing for those Christmas cookies.

2-Ingredient Snow Paint Ingredients

How to Make Snow Paint

  1. Take the lids off your squeeze bottles and squeeze several drops of each food coloring in a different bottle.
  2. Carefully fill up with cold water, not too fast it will bubble over.
  3. Tightly place the lids back on and wipe down the bottles.
  4. Carefully take the tops off and use to paint in the snow.

I know it’s a stretch to call it 2 ingredients when one of those is water, and you could technically get that from the snow but it is a required item so it’s not just straight food coloring.
