How to Make Snow from an Ivory Soap Bar

I found a recipe for How to Make Snow in a book last week and thought it would be perfect since our school was all themed around snow for the week.

While we all thoroughly enjoyed the activity the only snow-likeness is that it is white! But being as we live in the south and will likely not see real snow I’m game for calling this snow!

To make you need

– equal parts grated soap and lukewarm water
– a mixer
– food coloring {optional}
– paint brushes {optional}

I used 1/2 cup of grated Ivory soap and 1/2 cup of water.

In your mixer combine the water and soap and mix on low until smooth. Increase to medium/high and mix for 3-5 minutes until meringue like peaks form.

Use fingers or paint brushes to apply to windows and mirrors for a festive touch. For less mess use a large cookie sheet and let the children play with their homemade snow on the cookie sheet.

Cleaning this homemade snow off the windows it easy – simply wipe off with a damp cloth!

  1. If it's foamy enough, you can put it on your Christmas tree and it'll look like snow. VERY pretty, and it'll stay there forever! (Unless you play with it when it dries. That is the exception…)

    • I have heard that… we have a fake tree though and the mess scares me! But I had thought about doing it outside to make it look like it snowed and tease the boys ;)

  2. Those are really cute! Looks like something a kid would love doing! My 6 year old niece visited us from Ohio about a month ago. She and my 11 year old daughter spent quite a bit of time making snowflakes. Bet they would love this!

What do you think?
