This year, it’s not easy to go to the mountains!
Do you still want to have snow on Christmas?
No need to buy an artificial snow bomb!
Did you know that it is possible to make your own artificial snow?
Yes, homemade artificial snow is possible!
And what’s more, it’s super easy … and non-toxic!
here is magic recipe for making artificial snow at home. Look :
What you need
– 500 g of baking soda
– shaving foam (preferably organic and unscented)
– 2 drops of lavender essential oil
– a salad bowl
How to do
1. Pour the baking soda into the bowl.
2. Add a good handful of shaving foam.
3. Knead your dough to make snow.
There you have it, you’ve made your own artificial snow 🙂
Easy, fast and efficient, isn’t it?
You will see, snow forms almost immediately. It is magic !
Of course, you can let the children help you.
It’s a great activity to do with children, ages 2 or 3.
Let them pour the baking soda into the container, then knead the mixture.
They will love to make their snow!
Be careful, this artificial snow is much less toxic than industrial artificial snow.
But since shaving foam is used, children should not swallow it. It is not edible.
But the salty taste of the baking soda should quickly dissuade them 😉
At first, just add a little shaving foam and increase the amount until you get the desired texture.
How to use your artificial snow?
You can use this artificial snow for the decoration of your nursery or tree as explained here.
Children can also just play with it and form little snowmen with their hands or a few molds (you know the ones we use at the beach).
To do this, spread a blanket or plastic tablecloth on the floor.
It’s easier than sitting on the table. And let the children’s imaginations do the rest!
They play with it as if it is real snow. It’s a great sensory activity!
In addition, for cleaning, nothing could be simpler. Just take the blanket or tablecloth and shake it outside.
If your artificial snow has spread a little on the carpet or rug. Do not panic !
A vacuum cleaner and everything is nickel. Remember, baking soda is an exceptional natural cleanser, just like essential oils.
Suddenly, you clean your carpet or your carpet in the process!
You can even offer your artificial snow for Christmas! Put it in a jar, add a little glitter to make it even more beautiful.
Close the jar and add a big knot. It’s a great gift, isn’t it?
So if you can’t go to the snow … Bring the snow to you!
