12 Days of Christmas Crafts :: Day 6

Cue the Christmas music and hang up your stockings, it is finally Christmas time y’all! With only weeks away from Santa’s arrival, we wanted to do something to inspire you to keep the little ones occupied. So, we bring you “12 Days of Christmas Crafts.” Much like the popular Christmas song, we will give to you a new Christmas craft idea for 12 consecutive days. The posts will include everything you need to know from ingredients to instructions to little tips. Let’s get right into it!

On the sixth day of Christmas, Red Stick Mom gave to me … DIY play snow!

Here in the South, snow isn’t usually a part of our holiday scene. BUT we can make DIY pretend snow to create a magical moment (or moments) for our children. Don’t worry if you don’t consider yourself a crafty mom, it is easy to make with minimal ingredients.

What you’ll need:

  • 2 1/5 cup of baking soda (or a bit more for “less wet” snow)
  • 1/5 cup of white hair conditioner
  • Optional: arctic animals, spoon for shovel, toy plow, buttons, toothpicks.

That is it! Easy, right? Just mix it up together and your pretend snow is done!

The cool thing about this DIY pretend snow is that it can actually form balls / shapes and can be crumbled to start all over again. It is awesomeness that smells good and worth the mess. Yes, mess. Here’s your warning. My suggestion is suggesting crawfish trays for the snow. It seems to stay a little more contained that way.
