Toddler Time: Sensory Snow (And How to Clean It Up!)

Some days, especially rainy days here in the Pacific Northwest, don’t allow for me to get outside to play with my little guy. When we’re stuck at home for too long he goes a little stir crazy so I do my best to come up with some fun activities that he can do inside. If they make a little bit of a mess he loves them even more so, unfortunately, those are the types of activities I have to plan.
Since the Christmas season is upon us, (yippee!!) what could be better than playing in the snow??? Of course, snow isn’t happening anytime soon here so I figured it would be fun to make our own snow to play with. Maybe it will help me ignore the never ending rain… Maybe… Probably not…
Caleb had so much fun playing in the snow and it kept him occupied long enough for me to do my hair and makeup! #Winning. We’ve already done this activity twice now since it was such a hit and I’m sure we’ll pull it out again in the near future.
Want to make this awesome fake snow for yourself? It’s so easy! All you need is baking soda and foaming shaving cream. Measure out one cup of baking soda and add in the shaving cream until it’s a snow like consistency. A few decent sized squirts of the shaving cream should do the job!
Most importantly, have fun! Playing with your toddler should be a blast! I mean, how often do you get to act like a kid again? 😉
After making a mess with my little man, it’s always good to have Scotch-Brite® Scrubbing Dish Cloths – an all new product that I found at Walmart! – to help get things spic and span again! The silly fake snow was no match for this great scrubber! I love using the Scotch-Brite® Scrubbing Dish Cloth on Caleb’s little furniture because it provides non-scratch scrubbing power with the wiping and drying functions of a dish cloth. I would hate scratching up the adorable mini furniture in the house and I don’t have to worry about it when I use the right product! Plus, the used-to-live-in-Portland-hippie in me loves that the Scotch-Brite® Scrubbing Dish Cloth are fully washable, reusable, and sturdy. Gotta save the environment somehow! It’s the dish cloth. Reinvented.
