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!
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.
