Make your Own Snow

 On the morning of our Elf on the Shelf North Pole Breakfast, my sister-in-law brought over the ingredients for the kids to make fake snow (only two ingredients)! It was SO EASY and brought about an hour of fun (which is a lot in the world of three and five-year-olds)! All you do is add 3 cups of baking soda for every 1/2 cup of conditioner. Easy peasy. And, honestly, it really did feel like snow. 
In addition to the ingredients for the snow, she brought over lots of little decorations, so they could make their own snowman, by molding little spheres (sorry...force of habit. As a middle school teacher, I avoid saying, "little balls" at all costs.) She had stuff that they could use for eyes, noses, mouths, and even scarves. So, while the men in my family were watching the football game, my mom, sister-in-law, the kids, and I were all making little snowmen.
 After they molded their snowmen, we pulled out all the supplies and just let them play in the snow.
If it hadn't been naptime, I am fairy certain they would have played in the fake snow for another hour! In fact, I'm definitely going to do this activity again before the holiday season is over.

YES! I am a 7th grade science teacher and I just told my husband the other night that "balls" was officially on my do not say in the classroom list.

Hahaha! Right? The other day I read a sentence out of the Giver and thought, "who in their RIGHT mind would write a sentence like that in a children's book." The sentence said something to the affect of, "As I fingered the name tag, I realized..." WHAT? There was no other choice of words that could be used there? How about "touched"? Haha!
