It’s a chilly, snowy day here in my neck of the woods, and my kids are home for a snow day. I’m content to stay inside and quilt, sew, and bead- but if you have a yen to craft with snow, here are a few ideas for you!
- Snow Tie-Dyeing. Visit Bunk’s Blog for the step-by-step, but the idea is to place your fabric in a bin, heap snow on top of it, then squirt the fabric dye onto the snow. As is melts, the fabric absorbs the dye in a cool pattern.
- Snow Ice Cream. Got fresh snow? Scoop some up, mix with milk and sugar to make a fun treat. The recipe is via AllRecipes.com.
- Edible Snow Paint. Use Kool-aid and some clean mister bottles to make fun designs on all that boring,white snow. Thank you to Homemade Mamas for the inspiration & recipe.
- Snow Candy. Yes, just like in the “Little House” books by Laura Ingalls Wilder, you CAN make candy with just molasses, brown sugar, and snow. (And a candy thermometer wouldn’t hurt.)
And if you can motivate them somewhat, maybe you can inspire them to make cool ice sculptures. Here’s a quick video of a cool (pardon the pun) ice sculpting contest that was held in Breckenridge, Colorado.
Happy and Crafty “Snow Day” to all!
