The weather was frigid today, in the teen’s most of the day with a wind chill below zero. Needless to say we didn’t leave the comfort of our warm home. We were all getting a little stir crazy so we thought it was a great time to bust out another pinterest project.Since we couldn’t go outside and play in the snow it was a great day to try out the erupting snow recipe I saw on pinterest a few months ago. Luckily there are only two ingredients and we had both of them on hand, shaving cream and baking soda. I mixed the concoction up in a small bowl and was amazed that the mixture actually felt cold to the touch. Crazy!!I dolloped a few piles out on M’s highchair tray and she was immediately intrigued. Actually she was anxious for it before I could even get it mixed together. She poked her little fingers into it and we encouraged her to use both hands and make balls and we even made a little snow man. The texture is fun and she really enjoyed herself.
After she was done just mushing it I poured a little vinegar into a cup and let her watch the snow erupt into a bubbly volcano as she dropped little pieces into the vessel. It was so much fun! We will definitely be making snow another day. It was a little messier than I anticipated but nothing major. I would say four out of five stars.To see all of our completed pinterest projects click here.
