Insta-Snow!

We are tired of being cooped up with winter germs.  Aliah just read her second chapter book for the day.  Annabelle has maxed out on levels of Angrybirds.  Desperate times call for desperate measures.   I had everyone's curiosity piqued when the girls found this waiting for them:
 
I played "Let It Snow" as a hint.  The girls thought I got a giant snow-cone machine.  Violet was getting the hot-fudge (?) out of the cabinet, ready to dive in and fill her pie-hole.  I highly disappointed her when I told her that the surprise was something you couldn't eat. 

Then I filled each of their hands with some powder, a very small amount of very fine powder. 

 Add some water, and presto:  INSTA-SNOW!
