Sparkle snow is so fun!  It is cold, super fluffy, mold-able, and SO SOFT!


Sparkle Snow Recipe
I am including a photo of the buffalo snow so you know exactly what I am talking about.  It is key to getting the sparkle in this recipe.  You could also use iridescent glitter.

Mix the shaving cream and corn starch together in a sensory bin or container.  It takes a bit of mixing to work the shaving cream into the corn starch, but the process is FUN!  Both materials feel amazing!  I added a couple drops of peppermint extract towards the end of the mixing process, but you can add it at anytime or skip it.  It isn't necessary; It just adds another fun element of play and exploration.  

Once these ingredients are mixed add the buffalo snow and mix.  You don't need the whole bag of buffalo snow.  Just keep adding it until you like the amount of sparkle.  I like to add a bit to the top of the snow just before giving it to the girls for an extreme sparkle effect

Sparkle snow feels like fluffy clouds in your hands.  It is really powdery, yet mold-able.  It is softer than any other sensory snow we have created This stuff seriously feels amazing; It is SO SOFT!  It also holds it's mold better than any of the other homemade snows we have made.   It is fabulous for making snowballs, snowmen, and even for having a snowball fight!


Make snow angels with your fingers or favorite figurines!  Add some fun craft foam shapes and make snowmen



The possibilities for Winter play and exploration are endless!  I personally can't keep my hands out of this stuff.  All I want to do is run my hands through it over and over again.  It is so silky and fluffy and FUN!  And with the peppermint extract it smells amazing, too!  Pop it in the freezer for 10 minutes to make it COLD!  The added chill makes this amazing homemade snow even more realistic!
