To make your own Magic Foaming Snowman, you'll need the following:
Dish Soap (aka Washing Up Liquid)
First let's talk about the accessories. Anything waterproof will work fabulously. We used black brads for his eyes, and then I made a carrot nose out of orange foam (I glued it using hot glue to make a 3D carrot). I also cut pieces to make a little top hat out of black foam and hot glued them together. We grabbed two skinny little twigs from outside and we were ready to make our Foaming Dough!
In a bowl or other container, measure out two cups of baking soda and add 2 Tablespoons of salt. Mix throughly (little hands are very good at this). Add 1 tsp soap and mix it into the dough well. The dough should look crumbly. Next add 8 Tablespoons of water. If your dough will form a ball, you're all set. If it's still too dry and crumbly add water 1 Tablespoon at a time until you have a dough that molds into a ball. It will not feel like playdough - it's more smooshy and crumbly than that. But it should form into and hold a ball.
Make and decorate your snowman and once you're ready to transform him into a mound of icy cold foam, add your vinegar! It works best (i.e. creates the most foam) if you add a lot of vinegar at once. A squeezy bottle works best, but if you don't have one of those, pouring a cup filled with vinegar on him will also create a foamy explosion!
