Fake snow, REAL mess and real fun!

So what did you to for New Years Eve? Well normally we have a major family party and tear it up on the dance floor busting out all of our fancy dance moves! LOL! We make a night of it. We wake up eyes blood shot and recalling the previous evenings shenanigans and all make breakfast and it is tons of fun! Been doin it for years!!! This year was the first year in I can't remember how long that we didn't. So because I knew the kids were so sad that we weren't going to see all the cousins, I decided we would do some activities. We were gonna make fake snow and this gloop and we played bingo forever! There were fights about who was going to call the bingo numbers....ahhh the joys of family. We rented Turbo.....but the kids had the MOST fun with the fake snow and using their toys from the movie Frozen.

Here is a video to show you how easy it is to make!!!

Now, I had never made fake snow, so I was sooooo clueless as to the mess that would ensue! Oh, but the kids had so much fun and it kept them occupied for so long! So the truth of the matter is that I was "lucky" enough to have escaped clean up for this disaster because I ended up in the ER. So yeah, the olders had to clean up the youngers disaster, and I learned the valuable lesson that this is an outdoor activity.

Witness the mess, but the smile! Baking soda was everywhere.....I cannot say that enough. Here is the super cool thing!!! ONLY TAKES 2 INGERDIENTS AND YOU MOST LIKELY ALREADY HAVE THEM! Conditioner, preferable a white one to keep it looking like, ya know....snow. We just used a cheap bottle of coconut Suave, and it smelled delish! You need 3 cups of baking soda and 1/2 cup of conditioner, mix until all the baking soda is moistened with the conditioner and then have a go at making some "snow balls".

Look at how real the "snow" looks! Pretty cool huh!
