How to make snow!

We probably won't get a picture perfect white Christmas this year, but no worries you can make your own snow! All you need is baking soda and conditioner! Something simple to do while the kids are on break, and it'll keep them busy!
We recommend two boxes of baking soda to a half cup of conditioner. It last up to a week before getting dry, then just add a little more conditioner to reuse!
