I set up 2 trays with towels underneath them for any drips, and then found lots of little toys and baking pans.  I brought the snow inside in a large bucket.

When you’re finding toys and baking dishes, think about shapes.  Things like baking moulds, hearts, and cupcake pans worked great.  A couple different size ice cream scoops were a big hit too.  And don’t forget your gloves.

Coloured Water Spray

  • water
  • food colouring 
  • spray bottles

I set it up for my girls for a little after school fun.  Their favourite part was some coloured water.  I bought three plain squirt bottles at the dollar store, and filled them with water and added some a bit of food colouring to them.

So easy, inexpensive, and fun -that pretty much meets all my criteria.
