Are you missing the fluffy white stuff this winter? No matter the climate you live in, anyone can have snow this winter with just a little ingenuity! Learn how to make your own snow by experimenting with different ingredients until you’ve crafted the perfect recipe!

Supplies:

  1. Baking Soda
  2. Shaving Cream
  3. Hair Conditioner
  4. Cornstarch
  5. Water

Steps:

For these recipes, you can use as little or as much of the ingredients as you prefer – this is an experiment, after all! The key is to add the second item in small amounts and SLOWLY until you reach the right consistency. 

1: Baking Soda and Shaving Cream

Mix together baking soda and shaving cream, slowly adding the shaving cream in small amounts until you reach the right consistency. Knead to combine

2: Baking Soda and Water

Mix together baking soda and a small amount of water, adding more bit by bit. Use a fork or whisk to stir together until it’s light and powdery.

3: Baking Soda and Conditioner

Start with conditioner (be sure to use white conditioner so it looks authentic!) and add baking soda, stirring with a fork. This is a great recipe for snowballs!

4. Shaving Cream and Cornstarch: 

Mix equal parts of foam shaving cream and cornstarch until you have a foamy, light snow.

5. Now that you’re a snow-making expert, what other ingredients do you think would work to make snow?
