Snow Clay Recipe
Making this super fun snow clay is pretty easy. I normally steer away from creating play recipes that require cooking, but this one is worth the exception.
Snow Clay Recipe (affiliate links provided)
- 2 Cups of Baking Soda
- 1 Cup of Corn Starch
- 1& 1/2 Cups of Cold Water
- A few drops of Peppermint Extract
- Iridescent glitter
Combine all ingredients in a large pot except for the glitter. Place on medium to high heat on the stove and stir constantly. It does not take long for the clay to form. First the ingredients will begin to bubble, and then the liquid will begin to turn into more of a clay-like consistency. Continue to stir until you have the consistency of mashed potatoes
Then remove the pot from the stove and spoon the clay mixture into a large bowl. Place a damp cloth over the clay until cool. Once cool, add iridescent glitter and knead it into the clay until you have reached the desired sparkle. As the dough is kneaded it will become smooth and pliable, giving you the perfect play clay
To make your snow clay cold store it in a zip seal bag or air tight container in the refrigerator in-between play times.
There are so many FUN ways for kids to play with this snow clay. It is cold to the touch, smells fresh and clean, and is sparkly white just like fresh fallen snow. Rosie and Jewel had lots of fun creating snowmen with their clay
Kids can leave their creations out to dry and keep them, or the clay can be stored away to be reused again and again. You can also use the clay to make beautiful ornaments for the tree
We used snowflake cookie cutters to make our ornaments and then just topped them with more glitter. I made a hole in the flakes so we could hang them easily from the tree. It took about 24 hours for our ornaments to completely dry
While we opted to make snow ornaments with our snow clay you could use this clay to make all sorts of fun ornaments. Kids can paint their creations, too!
