Many kids (and adults!) in NZ dream of a white Christmas; they see it snowing on TV and wonder how the portly Santa can possibly deliver their presents while wearing all those wooly clothes!
While there’s nothing that we can do about the temperature, besides cranking up the fan, we have a few DIY ideas about how you can add a touch of Christmas magic to your backyard.
• False Snow
It may never snow here in NZ, when the kids awaken on Christmas day, you can certainly make it look like it has! Make your own easy, false snow with only shaving cream and baking soda.
• Empty 2 boxes of baking soda into a bowl,
• Mix a complete 500 ml can of shaving foam, and thoroughly stir.
You could also add white glitter to give the snow some of that early-morning sparkle. If you want more, just adjust the ingredient levels.
Keep the snow in the fridge until you want to use it. That way, when you give it to the kids to make mini-snowmen and snowballs in the backyard, it’ll be cold—just like the real thing! Homemade snow is completely safe and washable with water, so sprinkle some around your trampoline for some extra excitement on Christmas day.
To end our celebration of volunteer week, we thought we'd share a few ways you can volunteer for the Graeme Dingle Foundation. Every bit of support helps make a difference in a young person's life 💚

"This is a vicious cycle as the lack of sleep impairs our ability to concentrate and make good decisions. It can impact our food choices as well as our motivation to exercise and keep moving the following day" says New Zealand sleep expert Rachel Lehen.
On an average an adult should have a well rested sleep of 7-9 hours. An uncomfortable mattress, sleeping position, and even excessive use of blue light before bed can be the cause of an unhealthy sleep cycle.
