Day 2: 12 Days of Christmas Sharing!

Even though I only had one person link up yesterday, I am still going to continue my link up. :)  If you want to join in, I will still do a giveaway if we can get a few more people participating, but if not, all will be well.

Today I am going to share about one of my favorite Christmas-y products!  Insta-Snow!
We first bought some of this many years ago on a trip to the mountains.  We brought it back as a souvenir for the kids, I think a trip that Corey and I took alone.  It was the neatest stuff and we had never seen it before.  At that point in time you couldn't find it many places, but now I've seen it at several stores locally.  The kids love playing with it!  You add water to something that is the consistency of salt and it grows into fluffy snow.  It is cold to the touch, but not wet or icy.  It's really fascinating.
I pulled it out today and my 6 and 8 year old were occupied for at least an hour playing with their little plastic figures in the "snow."
I guess it brings about the feeling of Christmas to be able to play with snow indoors.  We hardly ever have a white Christmas here in Georgia...I can only remember one in my lifetime.  So having some snow around in December is a rare treat!
That's my share for today!  If you've never played with insta-snow, you should definitely order some... even if there are no kids in your house, believe me, it is AMAZING! ha ha!
