If you opened this post hoping it had something to do with actual snow to help you continue to fight this summer heat, I’m sorry. This dry sparkle snow craft from Jeannette at Mommy Needs a Martini won’t do that. (Well, unless you do it inside with the A/C blasting.) BUT, it will be fun. And, if I’m going to be completely honest? Messy! This craft will be very, very, very messy. But still, fun!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Large bowl or bin for mixing
- Baby oil
- Spoons, measuring cups, small Tupperware containers, etc.
And after you mix it all up, you’re left with some pretty, sparkly dry snow that your kids will have a blast molding, and shaping, and digging in. But hopefully not using for snowball fights! (Although if you’re really concerned about the mess, you could always do this outside.)

As always, if you try it, let us know how it turns out. And send some pics!
I’m no cooking or crafting guru, so I started these Too Tired to Try Tuesday posts to share craft and recipe ideas that I’ve come across and would really like to try but am just too damned tired (that sounds better than lazy, right?) to get around to. In addition to ideas that I find, I am open to submissions from you–either something tried and true or something you want to try but haven’t had the time to. Just send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your ideas, and I may share them here. (And by “may” I mean “will definitely”! I just confessed how
lazy tired I am, so if you take the time to send me something to share, I’m going to share it!)
