Welcome back, everyone! How has your new year been so far? Mine has been pretty good. Surprisingly, we’ve been having very Springy weather the last week or so, and it’s reminding me how much I’ve missed that beautiful season!
Anyway, have you noticed all the changes made on this site? My husband helped me remodel this entire site over the break. The cute navigation buttons are also his designs! I just kept telling him, ” I want this, I want that, I don’t like this….etc etc.” Thank you so much for always being so tolerant with me, babe!!
Moving on to the main topic of today’s post, my son and I had a fun time making an instant snowy scene using, “Floof.” I found this brand at a gift shop in the local aquarium of all places. lol
It’s soft and kind of reminded me of cotton candy. This is a type of never drying play dough, and I thought it would be great for imitating snow for my Sylvanians.
Although I used “Floof” as my pick, there are many other brands of kinetic sand type things in various colors these days, so I hope you experiment and find your favorite. Good thing about these as opposed to using regular snow or sand is that they are mess free and can be used indoors without worry. Also they are pretty easy to make shapes with, so kids will have lots of fun.
I patted down my dough, and made a instant snowy scene for my son to play with.
Here comes a snow boarder!
He can easily leave his foot prints on the snow, too. It’s not that easy with fake snow powder made for dioramas etc.
Snow angels! By the way, “Floof” in particular, will stick to your critters just a bit sometimes, but you can get it off very easily with some tape, so no problem there! Also I’ve noticed that once you open the package and let the product dry out a few hours, it gets much less sticky to your fingers and easier to work with.
O, oh! He is making a snowball station!
As I said earlier, it holds the shape pretty well, so you could make a snow castle, if you wanted to.
I think I’ll have a fun time playing with this again next winter!
