Paint the yard.
Fill several spray bottles with water, add different shades of food coloring to each, and shake. Then turn your snow-covered lawn into a brilliant canvas. (Or buy a Sno-Paint kit for $16.95 at hearthsong.com)
Examine snow up close.Catch some falling flakes on a piece of chilled dark cloth or construction paper. Then use a magnifying glass to discover whether it's true that no two crystals are alike.
