Adding Color to a Gray Day

We were supposed to have fresh snow yesterday, but we didn't. Today, Creed was tired of being couped up in the house so we headed out to add some color to the world.

I added food coloring to water in spray bottles (these spray bottles are from the $1.00 section at Target. We just stocked up on new ones because we play with them outside year-round). You might want to dress your kids in old clothes if you attempt this, but Creed was already bundled up and refused to change and that was ok with me because he was wearing a yellow coat, and I knew he'd spray yellow most of the time and he didn't have any siblings or friend around that would attempt to spray him (I tried to convince him that yellow might not be the best color for snow, but he would not hear of it).
As you can see, he had a blast.

He is the cutest kid! And you always seem to be doing the most creative activities with him. What a great mom.

Creed is so cute! I love the pictures. This is such a good idea. Don't be surprised if the snow at our house is colorful too....
