kids-like-to-make-it-snow-photo-by-photos-by-lina.jpg When it’s cold outside, many of us (especially kids!) want to make it snow.

… These are all great reasons to want to make it snow!


Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow

It seems everybody has their own rituals, tricks, and tips for making it snow.

While we can’t be sure every single one works – like snow sticks to a snow shovel – certain snow-making tricks and tips have been sticking around for years and years.

None of these are scientific, but here are 7 time-honored tricks, tips, legends that just might help make it snow!


Place A Spoon Under The Pillow

Placing a spoon under the pillow is one of the most popular tricks to make it snow.

While the verdict is still out as to if this old trick really helps, if you really want snow it never hurts to try, right?

There’s no apparent type of spoon that has to be used.

You’ll find that people use all types of spoons for this snow-making trick:

  • Plastic spoons
  • Metal spoons
  • Wood spoons



Wear Your Pajamas Inside-Out

When you go to bed tonight, make sure you wear your pajamas inside-out.

  • Kids: if your parents ask you why you insist on wanting to wear your pajamas inside-out, just tell them it’s for a good reason… Legend has it that it’s a great trick to make it snow!
  • Parents: Yes, wearing pajamas inside-out really is one of those old tricks that’s supposed to help make it snow!


Do The Snow Dance

Want to make it snow? Well, break out your boogie snow shoes and do the snow dance! It’s fun, it’s good exercise, and it might just help make it snow.

Not sure how to do the snow dance? You may learn a thing or two about one way to do the snow dance in this video:

Leave Ice Cubes On The Porch

There’s no apparent rule on how many ice cubes you’re supposed to leave out on the porch to make it snow… Maybe the more ice cubes you put out on the porch the more snow you’ll get? Try it and see.


Place A White Crayon In Your Freezer

Stick a white crayon in your freezer and then place it under your pillow before going to bed to help make it snow. This makes sense — white, after all, is the color of snow (at least the good snow, right?).


Run Around Your Table 5 Times

They say that running around your table 5 times will help make it snow. If your table is against a wall you should drag it out to the center of the room so you can get around your table a little more easily. Oh, and don’t trip!


Flush An Ice Cube Down Your Toilet

This tip sounds a little strange, but it’s an old one that supposedly has worked in the past for some. Flush a single ice cube down your toilet and then wait… This is actually one of the most common tricks you’ll find for making it snow.

    My brother taught me to balance a metal spoon on my nose for a minute, put it in the freezer for at least an hour so it got frost on it, and sleep with it under my pillow. Worked every time when I was a kid.
