Make your own Summer ‘Snow’ Balls for play!

A hot Summer’s Day and we made SNOW!! Well kind of…
This is my new go-to messy play item. Definitely for outdoors only, the shaving cream and corn flour combine to make a soft, squishy, light sensory play material. Miss E squealed with delight when she started mixing it all up and I must say that even I loved this one!

Soft Sensory ‘Snow’
You’ll Need
One can of shaving cream.
2 x 300gm boxes of corn flour (we probably had 550gm all up as one box had been opened).
One plastic tub/bucket/water play table.

  • Play, squeeze, shape, mould, do whatever you like. They make awesome snow balls for a snowball fight though!

    This would be AWESOME activity for a Southern Hemisphere Christmas. Because how many of us Australians secretly wish for a white Christmas…
