Angel said, "Let's go out and paint pictures in the snow!"
I asked, "With what?"
He said, "Your purple hair dye!"
I was okay with painting the snow, but I didn't think that my purple hair color was the best way to do it, even if I didn't particularly like that shade of purple. Together, we brainstormed ideas. My oil paints? No, they wouldn't mix with water. Watercolor paint? We didn't have any. Angel was back to the plan of using purple hair color when I vaguely remembering seeing something about people painting snow with food coloring. I had food coloring!
We were outside in the time it took us to choose our color and mix up some food coloring in a spray bottle full of cold water. It felt a bit risque, almost like we were vandalizing our own yard with our messages. But the next day it snowed again and covered them up. They didn't last long, but it sure was fun!
I don't think either of us are destined to be graffiti artists.
*Warning: If you decide on a month of adventure in February, realize that a rather large proportion of your adventure might end up involving snow. Because that's what you have to work with!
