Snow Clay Recipe

My girls are even more eager to play in the snow this Winter than they were last Winter.  I have had lots of fun coming up with play recipes to stave the snow play itch while we wait for the real thing.  A few favorites have been shivery snow slime, homemade two ingredient snow, and frosty fluff.  Today, I whipped up another fun snow play recipe, and it was a huge kid pleaser.

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)
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 

Snow clay recipe

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!
