Living in Florida, many children don’t have the experience of playing with snow. Being that I grew up in Montreal, Canada, I know all about snow and would love to share that experience with my kids. Through the years, I have I have tried many Snow Sensory Bins. This is HANDS DOWN the best Snow Recipe! I don’t know the science behind it but it gets COOL to the touch!!!!
This is one of my favorite sensory activities. The children can play for hours! Since everyone is obsessed with Frozen movie, they wanted to make Olaf the snowman! I have also used this recipe and had children spray the snow with a mixture of water/paint to make rainbow snow!
You Will Need:
- White Hair Conditioner (I used coconut scented, to make it “Florida Snow”)
- Baking Soda
- Dry spaghetti for arms
- Mini carrots for nose
- Wiggle eyes
- pop corn kernels for buttons
Note: You can ask use Shaving cream instead of hair conditioner but I prefer the scent selection of hair conditioner.
Mix 3 cups of baking soda to ½ cup of hair conditioner. You can change the proportions if you’d like.
Use wiggle eyes for the eyes, a carrot for the nose, spaghetti for the arms (some made hair) and pop corn kernels for buttons.
