This is the easiest, cheapest, fluffiest stuff to make. All you need is shaving cream and corn starch.
I buy both at Walmart, so the supplies are under $2.
You will also need a bucket or bowl, and spoon. Possibly glitter if you like sparkles.
We LOVE sparkles, so dumped in a bunch of it.
I know I mentioned a spoon, but we found that it was more fun to mix with fingers.
I didn't say that it was more tidy to use fingers...
Here is how we did it:
We randomly added shaving cream and cornstarch as we played with it, then dumped in glitter.
Here is how you should do it:
Spray out a giant pile of shaving cream, reserving some in the can in case you need it.
Slowly add and mix in cornstarch till you get it to a good consistency. (about 1/2 to 3/4 box)
Add more shaving cream if needed.
Add glitter, if wanted. (You'll be glad you did)
I'd say you could add some food coloring if you 'd like. But we were going for summertime snow, and singing about Olaf as we made ours.
Sugarwings added some shells to play with after she was done pretending it was snow. This is how it looked after leaving it outside on the table overnight, uncovered. I'd say it would probably be easily saved in a plastic bowl and reused if wanted. But for us, the fun is in the making, so we'll spend another $2 and make some more next time.
Our Summer Of Fun has been going by much too fast.
But we are enjoying every minute of it.
Taking time off to be with the girls, doing craft projects, day trips, swimming, and just sitting on the porch telling stories has been good for my soul.
Probably not so good for business... but I have made time to create and am looking forward to the "Journal of Nature's Blessings" swap. (this photo is from my prototype). And I want to thank everyone who helped me de-clutter the Boutique with the purchases made during the 50% off sale! I went from 10 pages of inventory to 6.
Now, time to rebuild with new goodies.
But not quite yet, I'm going to soak up some more summer fun first!
