Fake snow using only 2 ingredients

We are doing a Winter theme this week, because Winter has truly arrived in South Africa! Being a cold, wet day and the little one not feeling well, I decided to keep them busy with some fake snow. They loved playing it with it, they spread it out on the table and wrote in it. Well the older one did and the little one kept destroying what her sister made – that is basically our daily routine!

So how to make fake snow. I saw a few recipes but having limited things in the house and not planning on running around in the rain, I found a simple recipe. All you need is bicarb and water. Yes that is all!!!

You take bicarb (as much you want to use) and put one teaspoon of water at a time in the bowl. On 100g I used exactly 1 teaspoon of water. Just mix in in with a fork and you will get fluffy ‘snow’. It kept my kids busy for hours!

It’s the beginning of Winter and every little thing that we can use to entertain them is helpful at this stage. So go make some snow and get them busy.

PS. Great sensory play
