Snow in Summer?!

Here in San Diego, it is getting HOT HOT HOT!  It is supposed to reach over 100 degrees by Wednesday! WHEW!

Discovering fun and easy ways to keep the little ones entertained as well as cool is a challenge all on its own.  So we are here to help!

Thanks to “Growing a Jeweled Rose”, we can make it snow in the middle of summer!

This bath snow is super simple to make and 100% tub safe!  All you need is baking soda and water.  That’s it!  To make the bath snow slowly add water to the desired amount of baking soda until it is mold-able and damp but not too wet.  If you accidentally add tooo much water just add more baking soda.  Then pop the snow in the freezer for half an hour or longer before it’s time to play.  This makes the snow cold and crunchy JUST LIKE REAL SNOW!

Baking soda quickly dissolves in water meaning it won’t clog your drains and will actually clean them!  Baking soda is also great for skin and gives kids bath water a therapeutic attribute.

Not only does this activity provide exciting entertainment, but creating sensory play can be educational as well!
