So I did a little research and found 8 ways you can make your own snow – without actually needing snow.
This fun Snow Dough from The Imagination Tree is soft, silky, easy to mold, and full of sparkle!
All you need are 2 pantry staples to put this wonderful sensory experience together for your Happy Buddies.
The Chocolate Muffin Tree shows how to make snow in your blender using some ice cubes.
Seriously, who knew that a can of shaving cream was so important for creating indoor snow fun??
Mom Endeavors mixed up some Snow Paint using shaving cream and white glue for her Happy Buddies to create puffy, wintery masterpieces.
I love that this snow from Growing a Jeweled Rose is called Frosty Fluff and all you need is that helpful can of shaving cream and some corn starch.
Crayon Freckles simply squirted out shaving cream (that’s it!) on a pan for her Happy Buddy to play in.
*Side Note – I have friends that put their Happy Buddies in their swimsuits and then let them go nuts in the shower with a can of shaving cream – now that’s what I call a blizzard of fun! Plus, shaving cream cleans – so it’s a win-win for everyone. Clean showers and kids having a great time? Sounds good to me.*
The Artful Parent picked up a can of Insta-Snow at her local school supply discount store.
You should go see all the ways her Happy Buddies had fun with this amazing stuff!
A Mom’s Year made these magical Soap Snowballs by shredding some soap and then remolding the soap around a toy so that there are hidden surprises in the snowball.
What a neat favor for a wintertime party!
And, finally, if you haven’t seen this idea yet – it’s going to change your life.
You can make snow by exploding a bar of Ivory Soap in the microwave!!!
*Don’t worry – your microwave won’t get damaged. It might even help clean it up a bit.* :-)
Your Happy Buddies are going to be in a flurry of excitement over this. They can play with it in the tub – add a little water and make tiny soap snowmen.
Check out Come Together Kids for the details on this amazing experiment that will reign over the thrill of real snow any day.
Well, maybe not. There is nothing like the magic of a real snowfall. :-)
But hopefully one of these ideas will help you out a bit while you wait for one.
Happy DIY Snow Make-ing! :-)
