It’s officially Blogmas again! I am so excited. This is easily my favorite time of the year. We are starting out Blogmas this years with DIY fake snow. It doesn’t snow here usually, and I wanted DJ and Brooklyn to be able to play in the “snow.” That’s where the idea of making them DIY fake snow came from. Honestly, it was really easy to make. However, if you hate getting messy you should wear gloves.
What you need:
How to make it:
DIY fake snow was one of the easiest things to make for the kids. I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out, but they loved it. First, I dumped out the 2 pounds of baking soda in the bowl.
Second, I slowly added shaving cream. I made sure to use my hands to mix it in after each portion of shaving cream. Lastly, once the snow is the correct consistency I added several drops of peppermint extract. I know snow doesn’t smell like peppermint, but I wanted the illusion of coldness. Even if that was only by smell.
When I made the snow Brooklyn was napping. However, DJ does not take naps anymore. He played with the “snow” for over an hour. It was definitely messy. Honestly, I recommend protecting the area where the playing will be happening. I just enjoyed the fact that he had so much fun doing something different.
I will definitely be breaking out the fake snow a lot for DJ and Brooklyn. Hopefully, we actually get to go to Mt. Charleston this year, and they’ll be able to play in real snow. Until then it’s all about the fake snow.
