How to Make Fake Snow


1lb baking soda
1 can unscented shaving cream

Mix the baking soda and shaving cream. Knead the mixture until it becomes soft and pliable. 

That’s all there is to it, super quick and easy!

This mixture is cool to touch and great for sensory play. My 4-year-old daughter loved being able to make her own snowballs and miniature snowmen.

 Obviously, make sure to supervise, especially the younger ones with this. 🙂


We mixed this in an empty 4qt plastic ice cream container, and it worked perfectly.

Tip:  Next time I will probably only add about a half of a can of the shaving cream. This mixture worked fine, but the “snow” was somewhat sticky.  I would suggest just to mix it slowly until you get the right consistency.

 The real stuff 🙂 Isn’t it pretty??? 
We really haven’t had that much snow this year, but I took this pic several weeks ago when we had a little bit on the ground.
