How to Make Foaming Snow

Recipe
Method
  • Add the desired amount of frozen baking soda to a sensory bin or container.  We used two large boxes to give us 4 cups of baking soda.  
  • Slowly begin to mix shaving cream into the baking soda, slowly adding more shaving cream and mixing until the desired consistency is reached.

  • We used roughly the same amount of both ingredients, but this is a very forgiving recipe.  Just keep mixing the shaving cream into the baking soda until you are happy with the consistency.

Rosie and Jewel delighted in building in the foaming snow and played for over an hour.

Then, just when they were getting bored I revealed a "big secret".

Not only does this snow feel almost exactly like the real thing, but it also magically FOAMS when a bit of vinegar is added!

The reaction between the ingredients was unique to any other baking soda and vinegar reaction we have seen in our play.  
  • 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!
