Last weeks homeschool topic was all about Antartica and it seemed only right to have Baking Soda Snow as one of our sensory activities!
As your probably well aware, we do a fair bit of baking soda and vinegar activities purely because it is one of the sensations that Izzy struggles to deal with and has done for quite some time so it’s little activities like these that help us work through the issue.
Thursday was a gloomy, rainy day (hence the terrible pictures) here so we ended up pulling the farm mat onto the deck and sat under the deck awning making snowballs and burying penguins! Totally normal right?
Baking Soda Snow is super easy and quick to put together and can give you a good hour or so of fun…. with a little bit of mess. I do highly recommend doing this activity either outside or in an easy to clean area as your floor or surface you are working on will get a bit messy!
What you’ll need
– 1c baking soda
– a few good squirts of hair conditioner
– silver glitter (optional)
– a bowl for mixing
– a tray for playing
– white vinegar
What to do
– Grab your bowl and whack in your baking soda and glitter. Give it a good stir with your hands or a fork.
– Add a few good squirts of conditioner and mix until you can compact it together so it holds its shape.
– Turn it out onto your tray, add some toys and you’ve got yourself a snowy winter wonderland! When you or your kiddo has had enough, add some white vinegar and watch your snow erupt into a pile of bubbles!
