When you live in a place where winter lasts around seven months, there are days when the snow doesn’t seem quite as magical. Our family has raced sleds down the backyard hill, built snow caves and snowmen, made snow angels and thrown snowballs. The kids have skied back and forth along our street and caught snowflakes on their tongues.
But as of March 28, 2012, our backyard still has a two-meter high wall of snow, and it’s not the fresh, fluffy kind.
So what’s a mother to do? Introduce them to graffiti art, of course.
Spray bottle + water and food coloring = a least an hour of solid outdoor entertainment.
