If your kids are bored this holiday season, here’s a fun activity: making “snow” at home. Warning: this can get messy so I recommend doing it outside or in an area that’s easy to clean.
My son, who is in second grade, did this activity recently as homework. It only requires two ingredients – baking soda and hair conditioner. I recommend using cheap conditioner or even conditioner you’ve gotten while traveling.
Here’s the recipe: mix 2 1/2 cups of baking soda with 1/2 cup hair conditioner. Then let your kids smush it together. You can mold it into snowmen or simply use it as a wintery backdrop, which is what we did.
From flowers to centerpieces to invitations, being a do-it-yourself bride (or groom) seems easy but often it’s a struggle. Still some crafty wedding projects (like food favors and photo booth props) are doable. For ideas and expert advice, check out my San Diego Style Weddings’ article on DIY Weddings.
Here’s an excerpt:
