Make your own sparkle snow for glorious Winter play. This stuff is so fun we could not keep our hands out of it!
Sparkle Snow Recipe
Sparkle snow is so fun! It is cold, super fluffy, mold-able, and silky.
Sparkle Snow Recipe
- Two 16 oz boxes of corn starch/ corn flour
- One can of shaving cream
- Peppermint Extract (optional)
- Buffalo Snow Iridescent Flakes
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. Slowly add the shaving cream and snow glitter to the corn starch. You don't need the whole bag of snow glitter. Just keep adding it until you like the amount of sparkle. 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.
Sparkle snow feels like AMAZING 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 like fluffy clouds in your hands. It is SO SOFT! It also holds it's mold better than any of the other homemade snow or sensory materials we have tried. It is fabulous for making snowballs, snowmen, and even for having a snowball fight!

We used the craft foam shapes from our DIY Build a Frosty Toy
The possibilities for wintry 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!
