Make Your Own Snow!

Winter is in full swing! We love snow in our house, but we haven’t had any yet this year. We have had some rain, which is great,  but you can’t build a snowman with it. So, mom to the rescue! We are going to make your own snow. This DIY project comes from Savvy Sassy Moms.

Savvy Sassy Moms has an incredible recipe/tutorial for creating your own homemade DIY snow. This snow is not actually snow, but it is white and sticks together well for building.

Little hands can even use shovels, and tools and get super crafty with their fake snow. Want to build a snow castle? How about a snow fort? The possibilities are endless. Savvy Sassy Moms has given my kids a way to stay warm while still enjoying building in the “snow.”

Head on over to Savvy Sassy Moms now and get the full tutorial. You can duplicate it to make more, or cut it in half to make less. We suggest getting a plastic tablecloth or even a large plastic storage bin to keep the snow in. That way you have easy cleanup after your little ones are all done playing. Enjoy the snow!

Happy Hanukkah: DIY Dreidel

For those of you that celebrate Hanukkah, we have a great Dreidel activity. Now you can create your own dreidel at home. All you need to do is follow this DIY Dreidel Tutorial and you can begin playing your very own dreidel games today!

DIY Dreidel

The Dreidel Game is a great tradition that spans hundreds of years and some say can be traced back to the book of Esther. The Dreidel has four Hebrew letters, one on each side, ?? (Nun), ?? (Gimel), ?? (Hei), ?? (Shin). You can even win candy or coins when you play.

To learn more about the Dreidel check out Activity Village’s tutorial. You can also print a Hanukkah Booklet and a Hanukkah Cut and Color sheet.

Happy Hanukkah!
