Snow Slime Recipe

If your kiddos are eager to play in the snow this winter, this snow slime recipe is great fun and satisfies that snow play itch.

Even more exciting, this snow slime is icy cold to the touch and sparkly white, making it a great sensory activity as well. Watch as your little ones make OOZING snowmen and stretch and pull this faux snow in ways the real stuff could never allow.
