The kids and I decided to make some snow today. This was super easy to do. Simply dump a box of baking soda into a bowl and add about 2/3 of a can of shaving cream. Stir together well. We added some silver glitter to it to give it that sparkly look. The result was cold and a lot of fun to smash together. We were even able to form some snowballs out of it.
Now, I only had one kind of shaving cream in the house that I'd gotten for another craft. This kind was heavily scented and our son didn't care for the scent at all (neither did I). When you buy some, I recommend getting it unscented if you can.
When they were tired of playing with the snow, I gave them both large bowls of vinegar. Because what happens when you combine baking soda and vinegar? Bubbles, bubbles, everywhere! I think the kids enjoyed making volcanoes with the mixture more than they did playing with it in the first place. LOL
It was a great way to spend an hour or so on a windy Sunday.
