Kids Art: Snow-inspired Salt-sprinkled Paintings

We had snowfall!

Well, ordinarily, this wouldn't be such a big deal if we lived in an area that routinely gets snow dumped on it around the right season.

Ana made a huge snowball in the backyard. Oggie stomped around the backyard with feelings alternating rapidly between like and hate - while he likes the snowfall and the rarity of it, he hates the biting cold which makes him enjoy it less. We went for a long walk with some friends before the snow melted away.

And, inspired by the clumps of snowflakes falling down rapidly in such a flurry making the outdoors seem rather blurry, we did some Salt-Sprinkled painting.

Of course, the names are thought-up after the painting is complete. It is not like the kids set out to do exactly what the titles suggest. And, the naming exercise is more for fun rather than qualifying their creation in some way. We toss around many titles and finally settle on something.

ohhh :) How lovely. What a coincidence that we were going to try this tonight.. You should have a search button on your blog you know.. It'll make it easier to try out from the archives :)
A big fan.

MindfulMeander: Thank you for the sweet words, it made me smile :) I'll try to add sidebar links or something to better organize the psots - does the Blogger navbar help? How about the "arts & crafts" menu item.

The search widget from blogger would be very helpful :)
U rock! I hope you know that.

Yep, Shruti, I have the Google search widget in my food blog Delectable Victuals... will add one on here as well soon. Thanks for letting me know that it would be useful!
