Foaming Snow Recipe for Play

2-INGREDIENT FOAMING SNOW- a must try for kids!
The other day we made a new homemade snow, and it was so fun!
 This snow foam is unlike any other snow we have tried.  It is cold and fluffy.  It is soft, mold-able, and irresistible to touch.  You can make great snowmen with it, & you can make MAGIC snowballs.  This snow doesn't bubble like our erupting snow.  It foams in a very different way that is mesmerizing and so cool!  Are you ready to make your own?

My kids call this "Summer snow" because they love to play with it in the Summer!  It makes for a great way to cool off on a hot day!  Really, it's fun year round.  Are you ready to make your own?


Foaming Snow Recipe
Method
  • Add the desired amount of chilled baking soda to a sensory bin or container.  We used one (16 oz) box.  To chill the baking soda just place it in the fridge for a few hours.
  • Then, slowly mix shaving cream into the baking soda until the desired consistency is reached.

The magical foaming is unique to any other baking soda and vinegar reaction we have seen.  The snow doesn't bubble like our erupting snow.  It foams SLOWLY.  The reaction lasts a long time and builds and builds..... into a HUGE foaming volcano of fun

We have found so many easy & fun ways to make our own snow.  Making snow is great for a few reasons.  Kids who are anxious for the fluffy stuff can get their fix.  This is especially great for kids who live in a place where it doesn't snow.  You can explore with homemade snow while warm and cozy inside.  Sensory play like this is very calming.... and the list could go on.  Trust me, just try it!  Any way you make sensory snow is bound to be fun!
