This clay is incredibly easy to make, and there are so many fun ways to use it!  I normally steer away from creating play recipes that require cooking, but this one is worth the exception.  Are you ready to make your own snow clay?

Snow Clay Recipe
Method
  • Combine all ingredients in a large pot (except for the glitter).  
  • Place pot uncovered on medium-high heat and stir constantly.  It does not take long for the clay to form, but it must be stirred during the full cooking process

  • First, the ingredients will bubble, and then the liquid will turn more clay-like.  
  • Continue to stir the ingredients until you have the consistency of mashed potatoes.
  • Then, remove the pot from the stove and spoon the mixture into a large bowl. 
  • Place a damp cloth over the clay and allow it to cool for 20-30 minutes.

  • Then, knead the clay with clean, dry hands. 
  • As the dough is kneaded it will become smooth and pliable, giving you the perfect snow clay!

A tip:  To make your snow clay cold store it in a zip-seal bag or air tight container for a few hours before play.

Leave kids' creations out to dry or store the clay away after play. It can be used again and again! 

Note:  If you are making ornaments don't forget to pierce a hole in them before leaving them to dry.  That way they are easy to hang from the tree!  We used circle cookie cutters to make our snowman ornaments.

It took about 24 hours for our ornaments to dry.  Kids can paint their creations, too!  We used bottled puffy paint to embellish our snowmen once they were dry.  The paint we used can be found here.
