Yes, Katie, there is something good about red dye #40

pink snow castle
Okay, I don’t know if it’s actually #40, it’s whatever comes in those packs you get at the grocery store. The girl is trying desperately to eke out the last bit of winter play out of the remaining snow before it melts away. So today she insisted we build a castle. One five gallon bucket and a few smaller buckets and cups later we had a highly indefensibly snow castle. Just for fun I grabbed a spray bottle of water and squirted in some red food coloring. Voila! Pink snow castle.
