Snow Birds
Enjoy the winter snow days with your children and decorate your snow-filled yard with bird snow sculptures!

Materials Needed
  • Cups of water
  • Food coloring
  • Paint Brushes
  • Seeds
  • Dried fruit
  1. Drop food coloring in your cups of water to make all of the "paint" colors you desire.
  2. Go outside and build a bird out of the snow.  Sometimes using a little water to help shape your bird can help.  Birds can be standing, sitting on a next, whatever is desired.
  3. Paint your snow bird.  Use a field guide or the internet to model your sculpture after a Colorado bird species or use your imagination to create your very own bird.
  4. Use seeds and dried fruit to decorate your bird.  Dried fruit works well for the eyes and seeds can be used to fashion a beak.  The bird in your yard will love to eat the seeds and fruit!
