We live where it's warm and will never have a white Christmas, or any other day of snow fall.
My kids wanted it to snow, so my son came up with a solution!
Enjoy the video of Monkey's home made snow machine:
DIY "Snow" Maker
This easy to make, home made snow machine consists of a box with holes in it, full of cotton balls, attached to the ceiling, with a string hanging down.
When you pull the string and the box shakes, "snow" (cotton balls) will fall to the ground.
How to make a snow machine:Materials:
First, cut holes in lid of shoe box, enough so cotton balls will stay in, but fall out when shaken.
Tape the lid onto the box.
Tape a small string, in a loop, to the bottom of the box (for hanging). You could instead poke small holes through and tie a loop as this holds better.
Tape a long string, long enough to reach from ceiling to floor, to one side of the box. Again, you poke holes and tie the string, instead, for a stronger hold.
Fill box with cotton balls.
Attach to ceiling with strong tape, we used packing tape.
