This month my little class of 2-year-olds has been celebrating all things winter. We have done several snowman crafts, made coffee filter snowflakes, and read a bunch of snow-themed children’s literature.
I saw this Snow Dough recipe somewhere on Pinterest and fell in love because 2 INGREDIENTS.
All week I talked it up with the kids that it was going to snow in our room on Thursday and for them to get ready for our little ‘blizzard.’
Then Thursday came and I got everything set up and went to mix it together with the kids and DUH DUH DUH… My assistant pointed out that I had accidentally purchased shampoo instead of conditioner.
It’s a good thing my 2-year-olds were in a forgiving mood! We had a good laugh about how I could be a weather man because my weather predictions were completely off. 😉
I arrived the next day with conditioner in hand and had the children help me measure out 3 cups of baking soda and 1/2 cup CONDITIONER.
We mixed everything together (and added in several sprinkles of silver glitter) and let me tell you a few things –
- My room smelled like heaven.
- The kids had SNOW much fun.
So much fun, in fact, that I had to send an emergency Work Order email to our facilities department requesting a vacuum because preschoolers and snow dough.
