Creating the magic of winter snow

    With winter now firmly upon us, help your little ones enjoy the experience of snow (even here in sunny Queensland) with some 'create your own' snow.

    Materials

    • 2 cups soap flakes
    • 1/2 cup cold water
    • Cardboard or heavy paper
    • Piping bag
    • Food colouring

    Method

    1. Put cold water into a bowl.
    2. Add soap flakes. using an electric mixer beat until stiff.
    3. Put portion of soap snow into smaller bowl. Add colouring and beat thoroughly.
    4. Put into piping bag and let children pipe on to paper.
    5. Repeat with another colour. Soap snow dries to a fluffy, fragile texture.

    Caution: this mixture clogs drains so wash up might be best outdoors.
