Who Says You Can’t Have Snow In Summer?
Whether you’re planning a summer Frozen party or a Winter ONEderland party this mold-able snow is a perfect affordable, easy & fun kiddo activity.
I made 3 batches of this mold-able snow to put it in our water table and it was a great amount as it filled the tub enough to be fun, but not too much to be a huge mess or an over priced DIY!
What you’ll need to make 1 batch:
– 2 -16oz boxes corn starch @ $1.19/ea = $2.38
– 1 can shave cream; I bought from dollar store! $1
– glitter (optional); can get on Amazon for $3.99 and FREE shipping for PRIME members. This container would be plenty if making 3-4 batches.
TOTAL per batch: $4.38
Start with emptying the two boxes of corn starch into a large bowl. Then, spray about 1/2 cup – 1 cup shaving cream on top.
Knead the shaving cream into the corn starch (kind of like kneading bread dough). Once it’s mixed start adding more shaving cream; you’ll want to add the shaving cream 1/2 cup – 1 cup at a time. It starts off really sticky, then will smooth out.
Once the snow is smooth you can add the optional glitter, I used the translucent glitter as I had some on hand. This makes the snow shimmer like freshly fallen snow!Once it’s mixed it’s not sticky but it can be messy so put in an easily cleaned area or on a sheet to protect floors/carpeting. We put our snow in our water table which worked great for easy clean up. Just scoop out the snow, open the drain plug & hose it down!
I also added the extra “sparkle” to this activity with an Olaf cardboard cutout and found a FREE printable download for the sign.
