How to Make Your Own Snow

The process of making your own snow was never easier and cheaper. You will be able to enjoy winter as you wish, as many times as you want. Keep it real, it won’t be as cold as the real thing, but think about all the time you will save by wearing gloves and boots.

All you need is a bowl, half a cup of conditioner for gray hair, and three cups of baking soda.

You should mix 3 cups of baking soda with half cup of white hair conditioner. It’s better to use your hands to mix it so you can feel it texture. You’ll know it’s ready when you can pick it up and form snowballs. It will be cool to the touch like real snow!

All of the ingredients can be easily found on Dollar Tree if you don’t already have them at home. To keep fake snow fresh and make it last longer, place it in a sealed bin or bag.

Don’t be scared to experiment with other items such as shaving cream or coarse sea salt.
