Time: 10 mins
Age: Toddlers to Big kids
Difficulty: Easy peasy
You will need:
- Corn flour
- Baby oil OR vegetable oil
- A mixing bowl and cups to measure out the ingredients
- Mirror or board
- Festive cake toppers
Step 1: Measure out the ingredients
Put 2 cups of cornflour in a bowl
Add ½ – ⅓ of a cup of baby oil or vegetable oil.
A note about the oil: baby oil does make the snow smell wonderful but it is harmful if ingested by young children. Obviously this fake snow should never be eaten but if you worry that your very young child might put some in their mouth then use vegetable oil to be on the safe side.
Step 2: Mix it up to make the snow
Use your hands to combine your mixture.
If it’s too dry add a little more oil, if it’s too sticky add a little more flour.
You are looking for a soft but still quite crumbly mixture that looks like real snow.
Step 3: Make your magical snow scene craft
Your children can simply have fun playing with the snow as it is.
To finish your magical snow scene craft, sprinkle the snow on a board or mirror and arrange cake toppers and winter themed toys on top of it to make a beautiful festive scene.
You can sprinkle some more snow on top if you like.
Enjoy this magical snow scene craft as a table centrepiece or under the Christmas tree
