Homemade Snow – for my Friends in the U.P.

I keep seeing posts on Facebook about the epic snow falling in the U.P., one of the snowiest places in the U.S.  58 inches so far this year!

Ahhhh, Snow in October in the  U.P., circa 2010.  A minute after that picture was taken Molly nailed Joseph with that "snowball".

And it is starting to snow here in New England.  Luckily, ours is just pretty, not plan-cancelling.  But with with 3 young children I am always ready for a day in the house.

Here is our favorite homemade snow recipe, for when you don’t feel like going outside anymore or bringing that wet stuff in:

one part shaving cream
one part white school glue

Combine well and sculpt, paint, and play away!  The mixture ends up thick and goopy and dries up puffy.  It keeps for months.
