I’ll be the first one to admit, I’m not always excited to go out and play in the freezing cold. Yet I know my kids love when Mom gets in on the winter fun, and if I’m going to spend an hour getting them all bundled up for fifteen minutes of playtime, we might as well make the best of it.
Of course we like all the usual favorites – snowball fights, snow angels, snowmen, etc. – but recently we took our snowy playtime to a whole new level by adding color!

Andrea Cane, Yorktown Heights mom and the creator of Color My Worlds Sand and Snow Coloring Kit, sent us one of her products to try out (and one to give away, too, so keep reading!)
The kit comes with a snow brick maker, 2 plastic spray bottles, 10 color tablets and a mesh carry bag for storage. My oldest daughter (a.k.a. review assistant) helped create the color sprays by filling the spray bottles with water and adding color tablets of her choice. The fizzing tablets were fun to watch!
Later on we combined tablets to make purple, green and more colors. Based on past experience with color dying crafts, I was keeping a close eye on was the possibility of staining and I’m happy to report that everything easily wiped and washed clean! This is definitely an advantage over other snow coloring options because really, what mom wants a bunch of little red fingers touching everything in the house?
Even the dog got in on the art project.
Building with the brick-maker was a hit with the kids. It made it easy to construct fun shapes in the snow from their imagination. For more inspiration, the Color My Worlds website offers a printable packet that kids can color before putting their creativity into action outdoors. Some ideas include a snake, aliens, a snow fort and more.
We’re excited to bring the kit to the beach this summer to see what we can do with it in the sand! The Color My Worlds Sand & Snow Coloring Kit and Refill Color Tablets can be purchased on Amazon.
