We haven’t had any snow in Eastbourne this year, it doesn’t look too hopeful either buuut it’s ok Zimpli Kids has come to the rescue with SnoBall Play. Amber was very excited for snow so we thought we’d head to the beach, as it’s our favourite place and then the children could make as much mess and noise as they wished!
We mixed it up gradually as we heard you didn’t need to use as much water as the box states if you want snowballs that stay together and I was curious to see the different stages while it was mixed.
Amber’s face in this picture says it all, she was thrilled when it started looking exactly like snow. But not cold, which was a major bonus according to Amber.
Jasper has never experienced real snow yet, but loved feeling this stuff. The packet states for over 3 years so we just kept a close eye on him. Plus it also states that the product is non toxic.
So this is where it got really fun, I mean look at that cheeky face!
Jasper literally has no clue what is going on, but I’m loving this series of photos, you can see how it stays formed in the air then explodes when it hits, just like real snow!
We were all covered in it by the end, but it was easily brushed off, no damage at all. Before we left I added more water to some left over, it just dissolved away, so no harm done to the beautiful beach and not as much mess as I feared it could be.
The happiness in Amber’s face here is amazing, we definately need some more! When Jasper understands more, or for playing with Amber’s friends.
Amber reckoned that SnoBall Play was better than real snow as it’s not cold and it feels lovely (the words of a nearly 5 year old)
We were gifted this from Zimpli Kids but all opinions are our own!
