I have been meaning to try this since I pinned it last year but like many of my pinterest boards the activities go on my boards and stay there. I decided to do this once since Vincent and Luke have become a tad obsessed with finding their Elf (Sylvania). Last year I could get away with the elf staying in the same spot for days at a time but Vincent is fully on my case and checks on the elf at least 5 times a day. So I clearly had to up my Elf on The Shelf game over here.
It was so SIMPLE. You need two things!!
Conditioner (Suave is great)
You just mix 3 cups of baking soda with 1/2 cup of conditioner. I grabbed coconut and the house smells awesome. I feel like we are at a Caribbean Resort but then I snap back to the reality that we are in Ohio and it's cold. Ahh
I just poured it in a bin and mixed with a spoon. I added a little more conditioner because it wasn't packing very nice into balls. You can store this in a ziploc and reuse by just adding more conditioner!
It seriously feels pretty cool!
I am semi considering filling up a baby pool with tons of this stuff and never touching real snow again??? haha Just joking but this is a great indoor activity that doesn't involve freezing your buns off and children crying that they are cold! Its a win win!!
