How To Make Pretend Snow With Only Two Ingredients

My children and I love snow. It seems that we wait ALL year long for winter to come around. And when that first snow finally does begin to fall, we are completely thrilled and enchanted. The kids cannot wait to get into the snow to play! I hardly have enough time to get them bundled up before they’re running out the door!

So when my midwife mentioned an amazing way to create a “snow substitute” that can be made all year, I was all ears!

This is a super easy way to make pretend snow. It even has a very similar consistency to that good, packing snow thats perfect for building snowmen, or molds of any kind. An awesome perk is that it smells wonderful, and the recipe can be adjusted according to your container’s size, or the amount of children present.



– 2 cups of baking soda

– 1/2 cup of hair conditioner

– 1 large container

That’s it.

The directions are simple!

1.) Pour the 2 cups of baking soda into your dish. (I used a regular glass baking dish)



2.) Spread it out evenly, and then pour your 1/2 cup of conditioner on top. (It can be any kind!)



3.) Stir it up! It will quickly form together and become lumpy and moldable.



4.) Have fun! It rinses easily, so don’t be afraid of bringing toys in to play!




We love to make this. The kids stay entertained for hours on end building and creating different things. Its fun for everyone! (Especially when you make a ton of it!)

So if you have a little one who also enjoys the snow and cannot wait until winter comes, you can make this in an instant! Enjoy!
