How to Make Fake Snow

This is such a fun DIY for kids and the entire family. Once you learn how to make fake snow, you can make it with variations like glitter, or even give it as a party favor or small gift (we suggest gifting with a small toy animal!).

Our BtB kids absolutely loved this fun DIY; they played with it for almost an entire afternoon.

We added some animals and had so much fun playing in the rainbow snow.

Let's Get Started and Make DIY Rainbow Snow!

This is so fun and just incredibly simple. Really, really simple!

You know we love to keep things simple at Beyond the Blackboard. We're firm believers that you don't need to spend a fortune or take a ton of time to make things that are fun for your families. This is a great example of an easy and cheap DIY to try!

Ingredients for Homemade Snow:

  • 1-1/2 cups cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup hair conditioner
  • color splash tablets (optional)
  • various small toys to play in the snow (optional - you probably already have these around the house)

This is a really simple DIY, and you probably have all that you need at home. Homemade snow is so easy and fun to make!

How to Make Fake Snow for Crafts:

Add cornstarch and conditioner to a mixing bowl and mix well. You want your mixture to hold together so you can shape and form it, but it shouldn't be too wet.

Place onto a plate or into a shallow dish to play in. We used our kinetic sand sandbox. You can sprinkle with stain-free colored water if you would like to, but that is optional. Add animals and toys and play in the snow!

Now that you know how to make snow in minutes, give it a try!

Your kids will go crazy over this fun activity (best parent or teacher ever)!

How do you store DIY fake snow?

Store in an airtight container. If mixture begins to dry out, add additional conditioner. Easy!
