This is a fun way to extend the Art curriculum outdoors.  Make containers of branches and stones available.  The children can then use them to create a surface for painting.  Let the children paint directly onto the snow with brushes.  Encourage children to clean up by returning the sticks/stones and flipping the snow over with a shovel, then smoothing it over.
