With the anticipation of another New England snowstorm I decided we would make our own snow to play with inside. They temperature and texture felt very close to real snow!

Materials Needed:

  • 2 cups Frozen Baking soda
  • 1-2 cups Shaving Cream
  • Bowl for mixing
  • Spoon for stirring

Add the frozen baking soda to the bowl. To chill the baking soda place in freezer for a few hours before using. Slowly stir the shaving cream to baking soda until desired consistency.

The children enjoyed mixing, one mixed while others held the bowl. Lots of helping hands!

When it gets to the desire consistency, cold, fluffy, soft and moldable its ready to play with.  Make a snow fort or maybe a snowman!
