Make it Snow Indoors with 2 Ingredients

Welcome to our first blog post of the new year! This week, we have a delightful treat for everybody who didn't get to enjoy a white Christmas. And if you did, then why not recreate the experience with us as we learn how to make our very own homemade snow!
This is definitely one for Frozen fans! The process is very simple, all you need are two ingredients.
1. Baking soda
2. Shaving cream
Making the snow is lots of fun. We recommend doing this activity on a blanket that you don't mind getting a bit messy. You don't have to follow very precise measurements in preparing the snow, and playing with different amounts of baking soda and shaving cream can be half the fun as you find just the right consistency.
However, to make a good amount of snow, we recommend the following steps:
1. First pour in roughly half a kilogram of baking soda into a large bowl.
2. Now spray in shaving cream until you're happy with the texture. Encourage the children to join in kneading the 'snow' while you carefully add the shaving cream.
3. Now you have snow, what will you do with it? We recommended making it snow! Take a snowball and rub it between your hands and watch as snow flakes fall down!
We hope you have fun with this sensory play activity. Kids will not only enjoy the creative process but also playing with the snow itself. Tip: Try substituting hair conditioner for shaving cream and experiment with different snow consistencies!
Note: Adult supervision is required at all times when preparing and playing with the snow and using ingredients and objects to make the snow. Do not let your child consume the snow. It is better an adult sprays the shaving cream to avoid getting the cream in eyes. Safety precautions are the responsibility of the adult supervising.
