What do you do when you have two kids dying to play in the snow, but there isn't any?  You make your own! 
This snow is naturally cold, making it the most realistic play snow we have tried so far.  It is fluffy and powdery, and you only need two ingredients to make it!  Are you ready to see how?

  • Freezing the baking soda isn't necessary, but it makes the "snow" extra icy & cold.
  • Slowly begin to add cold water and mix, slowly adding more water and mixing until the desired consistency is reached.
  • As you mix the water into the baking soda the most amazing fluffy snow will form!
