    Fun in the snow activity from Amanda – Good for: creativity, gross motor activity
    Materials
    Empty clean squeeze bottle from household cleaners (with the trigger handle) or a plant mister
    Package of food colouring
    Water
    SNOW
    Preparation - plan for between one to three colours. You will need one bottle for each colour.

    Idea(s) - Squeeze some drops of food coloring into one of the squeeze bottles.
    Food colours can be combined to make other colours.
    Start with 15 or so drops.
    Test to see the strength of color by filling 1/3 of the bottle with water and shake. Add more coloring is necessary.
    Repeat this process for each colour you have planned.
    Find a good clear spot of snow outside
    Make sure the wind is in the right direction so you spray gets on to you or your clothes. Align yourself carefully.
    Show them how to work the spray bottle and control the flow, if available.
    Use the snow like a huge sheet of paper.
    Encourage them to move around and make a big outdoor painting rather than staying in one place.

    We did the hands and feet reindeer yesterday with a 2 year old and an after schooler - worked equally well with both - really cute!

    I'm making a December crafts folder for parents for children's Christmas pressies - just a plain folder (children can decorate) and putting everything nice in it - making sure they've got mounted hand prints, letter to Santa, collages of 'wish list' for presents, Hanukkah candle picture, foot prints, Babushka dolls, colourings, loads of photos, Christmas card, festive songs book etc etc

    We did the reindeer hands & feet pics today too. A 2 year old & a 5 year old did it & they had great fun making them. Mums were really delighted with them too.
