The winter fairies of RNIB demonstrate how you can make your own snow in a simple step-by-step tutorial.

Winter is upon us, but there's no guarantee it will snow near you. With two household ingredients, you can make your own sensory snow that's cool to touch and easy to mould!

What you will need

  • Baking soda (we used approximately 500g)
  • Shaving foam (we used approximately half a can, make sure you buy foam and not gel)
  • You can also add silver glitter and scented oil to add to the sensory experience
  • A large container or clear surface to mix the ingredients

This will make approximately five palm-sized snowballs.


  • Check out our step-by-step tutorial below
  • Warning: The snow is not edible – do not leave children who may put it in their mouth or eyes unsupervised.
