Snow Dough recipe to help Frazer Bear

The boys were challenged by House of Fraser to find the perfect ending for their Frazer Bear's story.  The original nide was that they would draw the end, but alas my boys are eight and nine and had other ideas!

So this is their ending to this story and I can assure you, no bears were harmed! 

Frazer Bear put Baby Bear in the fridge................................................

He then decided to put Baby Bear in the Freezer as the fridge only was 5 degrees and not cold enough to make snow

So Frazer Bear decided to make his own snow to show Baby Bear.........

It was so much like snow you could even make snow balls with it.............

So if you want to make some snow, we decided to share the ingredients with you.  You can even make it cold by putting in the freezer for 10 minutes.

Recipe to make your own Snow Dough

  • 2 cups corn flour 
  • 1/3 to 1/2 of a cup baby oil

This is so simple to do.  The boys added the ingredients in a large bowl and mixed them together and then tickled them (like rubing in flour and butter).  The snow is ready when it is crumbly but also crunches together in your hands like real snow and your can make snowballs with it.
Note: If you are making this for a child that will pop it in their mouth then exchange the baby oil for a light coloured food oil such as grapeseed oil.
The boys have been playing with our Snow Dough for the last week and have really loved it.  It is an amazing texture and Mini decided to build an igloo and that it was Hoth
It would make an amazing base for a Frozen World for playing in and you could even add iridescent glitter. 
I am sure that this dough will keep for at least a month or so when made with Baby oil, so we will be using any of the remains to make Father Christmas footprints in on Christmas Eve.
Disclosure: House of Fraser  sent the boys some toys for Christmas in exchange for this blog post.

Bissell Vac and Steam Machine Review and Giveaway

I have hard floors downstairs which I love.  They are much more practical than carpet with 2 mucky boys and a dog. Over the past 8 years I have tried all sorts of ways to keep them clean and I think I have finally found the product that does that for me. It is the  Bissell Vac and Steam Machine .  This amazing suel action machine vacuums and steam cleans either independently or at the same time.  It means that I have done away with my vacuum and steam cleaner downstairs (which I gave to my brother in law). What I like: You can either vacuum or steam clean or do both It is lightweight and easy to manoeuvre The handle is adjustable great for a home with people of different heights and for getting the kids involved. You need no chemicals The pads are washable and reusable It comes with a two year guarantee It warms up fast (within 30 seconds) so no long wait to start cleaning It costs under £100 It is space saving.  No need for a separate vacuum, steam cleaner or mop.
