- If you decide to use yellow food coloring, add a little red or pink to make it more orange. Yellow snow looks suspiciously like someone peed on it. And if you have a little boy, you know how much they love to pee outside.
- If you decide to use red food coloring, add a little blue to make it more purple. Red snow looks like your snowman had a different kind of accident. And after our friend's sledding accident on Sunday (thankfully, the feisty little girl is doing great!), I really can't handle even the suggestion of blood.
- If you let your kids paint directly on your snowman and not just in the snow, see if you can find a good wig to compliment the tie-dyed look. Somehow, the multi-colored snowman just doesn't look right with a traditional top hat and scarf.
As for that snow, here's hoping that Sir Walter Wally is right and spring is just around the corner!
