Make Your Own Snow

Wanna play with snow inside and not have it melt all over the place?  Make your own fake snow!  It's great for decorating , letting your kids drive their toy cars through or just plain playing in!
You'll need:
  • A few unused disposable diapers (It would be super gross to use dirty diapers.)
  • Water
  • A container to mix in 
  • silver glitter (optional) 

    Ok, now this is so easy you are going to think you missed something!

    1) Cut open the diaper and pull out the inside absorbent layer.

    2) Put it in the container and slowly add water

    3) Mix until it becomes snow consistency!  For powdery snow use less water, for slushy snow use more water.

    4)  Add a bit of glitter for some sparkle. (optional)

    My girls had a TON of fun playing with the snow! 

    We attempted to add more water and make a snowman but it wasn't really successful.  My girls did however, enjoy adding more and more water to see how slushy they could make their snow.  We are currently freezing the slush mixture to see what it does...

    What would your kids do with their fake snow?
