Fiddlebug, Bart and Craig saw a picture of the snowman who was watching over my yard. They have never seen snow and don’t know that snowmen are always white. They thought he was pretty neat, but said that maybe he could be more colorful. They came up with a great idea to bring some springtime colors into the bright white of winter where I live. If you want a colorful snowman too, this is all you have to do:
What you need:
One nice, white snowman
Some squirt guns, water bottles with a squirt top, or spray bottles
What you do:
1) Have a big person help you mix the food coloring and water in whatever container you are using. A lot of food coloring should be used since you want really bright colors on your snowman. Remember, food coloring stains clothes and skin, so be careful!
2) Squirt or spray your snowman all over. Make sure to do blotches here and there so the colors mix together and spread to cover all the white parts.
3) If your snowman starts to fade, no problem, just go back out and squirt him with colors again!
