Ever look at Pinterest and see all the snow, log fireplaces, hot chocolate recipes and general White Christmas ideas and think Wow, how different is Australia? Here we have burning sun, beaches, prawns and pavs and cold cans of drink; but would you have it any other way?
While I love the warm weather, I do think just once I would love to have a White Christmas like in the movies and be all rugged up next to a fire sipping a hot toddy but alas I am sure the forecast for this Christmas will be over 30 degrees so I think I will have to be happy with a nice chilled class of Moscato, some trifle and the air con!!
So to bring a little White Christmas to our home I have made Isabell some Two Ingredient Snow.
Simple, quick, easy and affordable is always the key with me so here we go……
Table Salt (the fine, cheap no name brand is perfect)
Silver Glitter (around $2 at the cheapo shops like Crazy Clarkes, Reject Shop etc)
I also used blue glitter to mix it up a bit so really any colour you wish!
Depending on how much “snow” you want to make, but generally 2 cups of salt with one small packet of glitter (25g). However as I was only needing a small amount for Sparkle our Elf on the Shelf, I halfed that and it made plenty.
Simply mix the two ingredients in a bowl and you are done. How simple is that?
This “snow” is a perfect addition to your Elf on the Shelf props as I have done here, and also great fun with Frozen characters.
This is an outside activity however as that glitter gets everywhere! Once you have finished playing just put in container or zip lock bag and save to make your Reindeer food for Christmas Eve. Find out more about that here….
