colour in the snow

Today the children experimented with colour using the snow that was left in the garden. 

We took some powder paint outside to experiment with colour. 

The children sprinkled the powder paint onto the snow to see what would happen.

Some of the children used the spades to mix the paint and snow together.

The children were very pleased with the end result, they brought some into the nursery to see what would happen when the snow melted. 

There are many festivals across the world that celebrate the end of Winter,  Holi is celebrated across India and celebrates the beginning of Spring and is designed to bring colour after the bleakness of Winter to find out more click here
