Hot Day? Beat the Heat with Freeze Dough!!

It was over 90 degrees here in PA today, which is pretty hot considering we had nights in the 40's last week. I decided to try something new with my kids to help keep them cool. We made Freeze Dough!! It was so simple to make, but you do have to prepare it a bit in advance so that it freezes. All you need is a can of shaving cream and a container to put it in. I bought our shaving cream at the dollar store, of course! Men's shaving cream works great, but if you look in the woman's section, you can usually find fruity scented shaving cream. I emptied an entire can of shaving cream into a shoe box size container and stuck it in the freezer for a few hours. My kids cooled down in no time and had a blat in the process!!

Freeze dough looks and feels like snow!
Perfect to beat the heat!


  1. You have the best ideas! I've never heard of freeze dough before but it looks like fun.

  2. Oh, thank you :) This was a lot of fun!! We will definitely do this again throughout the summer!
