You’ll need:

  • 1 cup of baking soda
  • 1 cup of shaving cream
  • some water
  • a bowl
  • a spoon or fork to mix with

Follow these steps:

1. Add the baking soda and shaving cream to the bowl

2. Begin mixing the baking soda and shaving cream together with a fork or spoon

3. Add a few drops of water as you’re mixing, keeping in mind that more water will make your snow more ‘clumpy’


When your snow is at the desired texture, you’re all set!
