Have you ever heard the old adage, "don't eat the yellow snow"?  If you live in an area where it snows a lot, then you probably have.  :o)

Well, now you CAN eat the yellow snow (and green and red and orange and blue...).

Simply collect up these materials:
  • water
  • food coloring
  • spray bottles (you can use spray bottles that you buy - i bought some at the dollar store - or spray bottles that used to hold cleaning products.  Just make sure you clean out the old cleaning product bottles completely first)

Put water in each water bottle.
Add food coloring to each water bottle.  
Go spray the snow and see the white snow change colors!!!  

You can make this into a wonderful language learning activity by talking about the steps, teaching colors, talk about how colors change when you mix colors (what happens when you mix: yellow and blue? red and yellow? blue and red?), describe the painting you created in the snow, talk about the verbs associated with the activity (pour in the water, mix the colors, spray the bottle, paint the snow, etc).
