After playing outside and warming up with a few good books, my girls LOVED this winter-themed art invitation. We brought in fresh snow (crushed ice could also work well if you’re not in a snowy climate) and used watercolors to create interesting designs. I went out for more snow frequently throughout the morning as it melted, creating some really unique patterns!
