Growing up in The Rockies, I’ve always wished that you could have the fun of snow but without the cold. Well, now you can! Keep the family warm and cozy inside with a warm drink near by all while you’re digging your hands deep into a fresh dusting of powder. Here’s how to make fake snow (with kids!).
Baking Soda & Shaving Cream
Baking soda and shaving cream mix together to make a perfectly moldable faux snow. Throw in a pinch of glitter as well and your kids will be shocked they aren’t actually playing with the real deal! It’s the ideal combination of damp and fluffy.
With this homemade snow recipe, you’re just two simple ingredients away from hours of blizzardy fun. Knead baking soda and conditioner together and away you go!
If you’d prefer a snow recipe that’s less crumbly yet packed with sparkle, Snow Slime is the storm for you. Borax and liquid glue give you a strong slime base while optional glitter and peppermint extract make things especially fun. Michael’s is your one-stop-shop for all the supplies you need!
Summer and winter come together pretty nicely with this sensory Snow Sand. Now you really can build a snowman and a sand castle all in one day!
“Dough” not pass this recipe by! Depending on how you combine the simple ingredients, Snow Dough can either be more powdery or packable for all your snow-building plans.
