Making Snow Inside

We had snow for Halloween and snow for Thanksgiving however now, in the middle of February, we have no snow. It has been a crazy winter and my two are missing playing in the snow. So of course I searched pinterest and found this project. Today, we brought the snow inside and the Owl was thrilled.

For this super easy project all you'll need are these two ingredients: dish-washing detergent and water:

Add about 1/3 cup water and several squirts of dish washing soap to your food processor ..

Soon a white foam will appear. The longer you run your food processor the fuller and firmer the snow will become. Owl loved watching the mini blizzard appear right there in our kitchen!

Just add some trucks and of course a hardhat and you will have one happy preschooler.

Owl loved plowing the snow. It lasted for about 45 -6o minutes of play and then sadly, like the snow in our backyard, it was gone and all that was left was a puddle of water. However, while it lasted it brought some winter fun to my little guy.
