The process of making your own snow has never been easier. You’ll have the chance to enjoy winter on your own terms, as often as you would like. Just keeping it real, it’s not going to be as cold as the real thing, but think of all the time you are going to save when it comes to putting on gloves and boots.

It’s a wonderful activity to enjoy with the kids, especially now that everyone is stuck at home for the summer. All you need to get started is a bowl, a half cup of white hair conditioner, and three cups of baking soda.

From there, all you have to do is mix the hair conditioner and baking soda together. Knead the mixture by hand, don’t rely on a spoon. If you need any further instructions on this hack, please take a moment to check out the video. Feel free to experiment with other household items if the need arises. Coarse sea salt and shaving cream can also be effective.
