On days too cold to go outside, we improvise! Here's one of our favorite recipes for homemade snow πŸ‘‡

❄ 1/2 cup of conditioner
❄ 3 cups of baking soda
❄ Small sticks
❄ Loose parts
❄ Cookie cutters
❄ Cups

Start with 1/2 cup of conditioner and use a fork to stir in about 3 cups of baking soda. This snow packs very well and is great for making snowmen! Add sticks for arms. Use the loose parts for creative play and decorating the snowman. Use cookie cutters and cups for making shapes and even more fun!
