5 Ways To Have Fun With Fake Snow, Snowmen and Snowflakes

You may be sick of the real stuff, but the kids will love these ways to keep the snow indoors year round.

Sparkle Snow

Make your own sparkle snow for glorious Winter play. This stuff is so fun we could not keep our hands out of it!

Everything is better with glitter, and snow is no exception. All you need is to raid your cabinets for baking soda and shaving cream, mix the two and then add some glitter to make it sparkle. Just wait until the sparkly snowballs start flying.

Cotton Ball Snow

Spread holiday cheer with these fun DIY decorations!

Give your home a winter wonderland effect. Take thin clear string, fishing wire works great, and then thread it through large cotton balls. Then hang. Throw in a few styrofoam snowflakes for good measure.

Snow Globe

Love snow globes? Make your own at home. It's super easy. Grab your hot glue gun, and affix it the bottom of the jar (you could also glue it to the lid, if you want that on the bottom). Fill your jar with water, a bit of glycerin (available at most craft stores) and a bit of glitter. The key is making sure to really glue the lid shut tight. Then shake away.

Kids constantly begging to build a snowman? Let them make a whole family of these cute little ones. Make your own play dough or use store bought, then let them embellish with googly eyes and buttons and whatever other supplies you have around the house.

Frozen Paper Snowflakes


Paper snowflakes have come a long way from when we were kids and you just haphazardly cut some triangles into paper and called it a day. Now they've got some incredible templates that are easy to follow and can create things from Star Wars to Albert Einstein, and we love these Frozen ones that will make your whole house look like Elsa paid a visit.
