DIY Sensory Snow is a fun way to have a snow day any time of the year! Homemade play snow is easy to make with a few simple ingredients and encourages hours of sensory play time. Bright out your DIY play snow on scorching summer days for some snowman-inspired fun. We made snow cupcakes and a snowman and had lots of fun sculpting our homemade snow into fluffy white balls.
To make homemade sensory snow, mix 3 boxes of baking soda with a cup of white conditioner and as much glitter as you want. This will create a dough-like consistency that holds together but also melts apart with handling. Let your child help mix the snow together for a hands-on kids' activity. My daughter loves measuring out ingredients and helping in the kitchen whenever possible. She was excited to help make the homemade sensory snow we were creating just for her!
Combine the conditioner with the baking soda and stir until the homemade snow reaches a moldable consistency. We added white glitter to our homemade sensory snow to make it sparkle!
DIY Snow encourages imaginative play for toddlers and preschoolers. It's fun to squish and mold into powdery snow balls, snowmen, and igloos. Or make cute glittery white cupcakes decorated with sparkly beads and jewels.
My daughter had a lot of fun scooping and molding our DIY Snow made with baking soda and conditioner. She made cupcakes and a snowman decorated with beads, hairbands, and a re-purposed bottle cap for a hat.
Making DIY sculpting snow is an awesome preschool activity for hands on sensory play!
