Make snow

For those who don't have snow outside, try making non-melting "snow" for your indoor tactile play time. Pack together some snowballs and make Frosty the Snowman or a penguin friend!


Make Snow

Mix 1-1/2 cup baking soda and 1/3 cup white hair conditioner in a bowl. This cool and soft mixture can be pressed into molds or packed into balls. For reuse, store in an air-tight container and add conditioner or water to moisten it if it dries out.


Scarf: fabric (and pin for securing)

Top hat: paper, scissors, and glue (school glue or glue gun)

Arms: stiff twine or small twigs

Face: carrot, beads, buttons

For projects for younger kids, look for Nigel the koala. 

BIG hint! You'll find Nigel in What's different? • Play portal • We Puzzle Together for Tots
