Fun Snow

We had a giant blizzard this weekend.

Unfortunately, the snow here turns brown and disgusting real quick but I decided that I wouldn't let that happen this time!
So I filled a few spray bottles with colored water and went around my neighborhood spraying the snow red, blue, yellow, and green.

The ground now looks like one big tasty snow cone.
Take that brown snow!

Little Miss Tiara said...

am I the first? Woots!

Little Miss Tiara said...

katze_kitty said...

Michelle | When I Grow Up Coach said...

You are a genius. The only colored snow I've seen is yellow. Gross.

Cass said...

I love this!! Now I want it to snow in SC just so I could do that with my kids. They loved the pictures and now are begging me to make it snow so they can make "snow art".... umm yeah, I can't exactly make it snow but if anyone else can let me know LOL

Macy said...

I grew up in NY--and when I was a kid my friend and I used bundle up and go out into the cold with a pitcher of koolaid. We would dump it into a pile of snow and then sit on either side and eat it!!

We loved trying different colors of koolaid!

Mariella said...

How awesome! I wish it would snow here so I could at least a little food coloring on a snowball and feel special.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS ;D

Auntie Em said...

you're too funny katie! I LOVE IT!

colormekatie said...

Laurnie said...

What a fantastic idea! You have such a great spirit

Michelle said...

I just thought I'd let you know, you're blog ALWAYS makes me smile!!

stephanie* said...

That reminds me of a choose your own adventure fantasy book I read as a kid. The maiden has to cross a snow mountain with colorful snow and each color patch has a different affect on her world! Magic.

Glamour Diaries said...

Aww how nice! I think NY could use more people with such a wonderful attitude as yours :)

Bethany said...

I love it :) What a fun idea!

amber said...

We used to do this in gradeschool all the time! It was so much fun to build a snowfort or snowman and then color it! Last year I ran a winter teen retreat and each team was given a spray bottle with a different color and had to build a sculpture inspired by and incorporating their color. So much fun. We had green turtles, purple bunches of grapes, and a "blue man group"

Leenie said...

Gives the line, "As pure as New York Snow" (Bette Davis Eyes) a whole new meaning!

People in the Sun said...

That's awesome. But even knowing what's behind the colors, I'm tempted to eat it now.

I bow down to your awesomeness. That is GORGEOUS!

Juanita said...

This is the one time ever you MIGHT be able to bend the rule about NOT eating yellow snow :-)

Richard Jesse Watson said...

Way to turn snow on its head. What a nice jolt for the passerby.

Raptor Plateado said...

Really great your idea, Katie, that's why I admire you because you always looking for ways to improve everything you do, you're super cool!! thanks for the comments last time, only one day I would like to see snow, that's one of my dreams, at least for now that the snow may be bright ... Thanks for this post so beautiful

Raptor Plateado said...

Thanks for this moment!!!

mart and lu said...

how fun! so colorful...i love it. makes boring so much more fun.

April: Modern-Mama said...

You always have such bright, colorful ideas! I love it! Where I grew up in PA, we always had very cold & snowy winters. People used to do the same thing with the icicles on the rock cuts along the side of the road. It was always beautiful to see. Now, we live in Las Vegas (military family)... any ideas to colorize some sand? haha

Ashley Serena said...

FANTASTIC idea. Where do you come up with these??

Ninočka said...

Marvelous!

Georgia Jones said...

You always make me smile and this colored snow was no exception!Reminds me of your cookies.
I used to put colored water in different shaped containers and let them freeze and then make beautiful colored ice castles. Try it!

Jamie Watson said...

This made me happy!!!!

Alinde said...

Now I know what to do tomorrow!
awesome idea!

Nicole said...

You made me smile today! I live in Vegas so definitely no snow here!

Bonnie said...

I discovered your blog a few weeks ago and have just been quietly observing ... but I have to comment on this ! SO COOL ! I love it. You are so clever and creative and inspirational !!

Hope said...

Thank you again for giving a great reason to not just smile but to GRIN!

mieZa taiB said...

wow..i heart it ..so creative..

jojigirl said...

Oh, a snow rainbow. Another Katie masterpiece ",)Love to eat it, haha!Reminded me of the Halo-halo, a favorite thirst quencher during Summertime.

Halo-halo (from Tagalog halo, "mix") is a popular Filipino colorful dessert that is a mixture of shaved ice and milk to which are added various boiled sweet beans and fruits, and served cold in a tall glass or bowl.

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

I don't know how you think of these things...but I really enjoy seeing what you come up with next!

Sue

May said...

Did you dare eat the snow ball afterwards?

Chelsea said...

you are so, so fun! i want to try this

Kathryn said...

I almost got hit in the face with a snowball when I inadvertently walked into an after-school snowball fight on 76th Street today. I would have been much happier had it looked like your last photo! Love it.

Wendy said...

I knew you'd have snow brought into your life ( maybe not your apartment but it found you outside!
And you colorized it as you do with everything you touch!
I love it!
We'd need trucks of colored water to colorize our snow because we are literally under feet of it and will be until March(thent it goes disgustingly brown and slushy!). We also make the most giagantic snow forts you can imagine! Keep the color coming! Just don't eat yellow snow (we grow up with that rule!)

caramelizedvintage said...

I knew where this post was going! So cute. Snow cones for everyone!

Anonymous said...

Though I love your ideas, I am really not sure about the yellow snow... :)

Tali Schiffer said...

What a fun idea!! You sure are creative my dear!!

Chloe said...

awesome, I've never seen snow :(

layia said...

so cool! i wonder what other peeps thought when they saw the snow wasn't white anymore!

Michelle said...

Honey, brown is beautiful! Enjoy what nature gives us, without cultural stereotypes.

colormekatie said...

Are you serious Michelle? Nature doesn't give us brown snow, car pollution makes it brown!

Kaotic Ekko's Curiosities said...

My brother and I decided one year that we were going to make a town scene out of colored snow. We made houses and a lake with a duck, etc. etc. and colored it with food coloring. Unfortunately when the snow melted the food coloring stained and ruined our picnic table and half our wooden deck! Ooops. But it was beautiful for a while!

colormekatie said...

haha so cute!

Linda said...

haha! Love this! Me and my friends did this once but we made figures. Like Donald Duck and stuff and sprayed it with colors. :)
Wonder where I have those picturs....

Marcie said...

So..so..so very creative. Love how you think!!!

babygurl said...

I hope I can eat those snow ball..yummy!!

Jaimie said...

what a nice way to bring cheer! love this!

Sylvie said...

You are the best ever. Enough said.

Frank said...

As Frank Zappa said: "Don't you eat that yellow snow .."

jennifer lorton said...

Terrence said...

This could well be my newest hobby! Better even than peeing your name into the snow. Well...almost.

Anonymous said...

this activity looks like it would be so much fun to do but.... I live in Florida. So.... I have to buy the fake snow. So, my next question would be; could you do this activity with the fake snow. hmmmm will get back with u.

jenn said...

Frothy said...

Katie, i have secretly followed your art for a while (cartoon eyes on things, started me)

But this neon snow looks all kinds of cute.
I'm contacting dictionary publishers.. to have the word re-spelt as..
...Kreative.

Michelle said...

what a delightful idea!

Carmen said...

Brilliant!
