It's winter break time for a lot of you. And if you have a toddler or younger child at home, you know you'll never really have a "break." But I'm here today to show you how you CAN have a..let's say in real honest time, because how much attention span can a 3 year old have...?....you can have a half an hour break! woo hooooooooo!!
Of course this is also a really fun sensory activity or just plain time
killer filler in the classroom as well.
2 Ingredient Snow!
You'll also need some sort of bin to make this stuff in. And if you want a nice scent, put a couple of drops of some extract such as peppermint.
This is my husband's "good," shaving cream. I ran out of my usual dollar tree stuff for these types of activities. He also does not know that I used it but he will probably suspect something come Monday when he needs to shave and there are just a few dollops left in there.
Now..measurement of ingredient wise...it's sort of guess and check. I used 3/4 of the baking soda box and about half the shaving cream can. But I would say start off with some squeezes of the shaving cream, mix, see the consistency, add more, mix, see...repeat pattern. You want it to get to a soft fluffy stage that doesn't leave sticky or wet residue in your hand, and it can be molded in your hand as well.

Now the best part was inviting my daughter to come see what I had created for her,
(or me to have a mini break, however you see it).
|First seeing what I have! Happiness!|
|Slowly reaching for it...|
|molding it and posing...|
|letting go... and her hand has a little powder on it but nothing sticky and nothing that can't be swiped away|

FUN TIME GUYS!!
Now go give yourself a break!
