DIY Frozen Play Snow!

Have you seen Frozen 2 yet? We went the first day it came out! If you saw it, what did you think? Did you like the first one or the second one better? We loved the Fire lizard. I think overall we preferred the first one. The second one was a bit more dark and I won’t spoiler the end, but we didn’t really care a whole lot for “who” Elsa ends up being. We did however love that she finally found her place, and the love that was obvious between the two sisters. That was always my favorite part about Frozen. Sisterly love.

Speaking of sisterly love… here is a fun Frozen theme activity for your kiddos to do over winter break.

It is easy to make and even cold to the touch. Your kids will love this fun activity. It is solid enough to build snowmen, igloos and other winter creations! Or pull out your cookie cutters and let them cut out their favorite shapes.

You will need a few simple ingredients to make your snow:

  • Baking Soda (COLD)
  • Blue Shaving cream (Make sure it is foam and not gel)
  • Silver glitter
  • Optional: scents or perfumes

Put your baking soda in the freezer overnight. You want it to be nice and cold!!

When your baking soda is nice and cold, pour it into an extra large bowl. Add your glitter. We just sprinkled it in until we achieved the affect we liked, but I would suggest approximately 1/4 cup or less.

Next add your shaving cream. It should be a 1:1 ratio. So for 1 cup of baking soda you will need approximately 1 cup of shaving cream.

We mixed our glitter and baking soda first and then added the shaving cream slowly to make sure that we achieved the texture that we wanted. Add the perfume, vanilla, peppermint, etc while you are adding the shaving cream. It will help it to be absorbed into the whole mixture properly. You want the mixture to be slightly crumbly, but to form a ball that doesn’t fall apart when you press it together in your hand. You do NOT want it to become liquid.

When it is no longer crumbly, but cold, humid and solid enough to make a ball, get out trays, or large plates or bowls for your kiddos to play with their snow! It is a lot of fun to use with cookie cutters too. And because it is blue and sparkly, it fits right in with a Frozen theme. The kids kept yelling, “I have ‘Frozen’ snow! Look at how it sparkles!”

ENJOY! Happy winter break! Hope you and your family are having a wonderful holiday season!
