Today, I combined a few common household items to make the most amazing play snow for kids.
This dough is icy-cold just like real snow!  It is amazingly soft, squishy (yet mold-able), and so FUN to play with that I myself had a hard time putting it down.  Are you ready to make snow dough?

The "cool" thing about this DOUGH is that it is naturally cold, but it can be made even colder by using refrigerated ingredients.  You can also add scent and sparkle if desired.  

Snow Dough Recipe
Note:   To make your snow dough extra cold pop the corn starch in the freezer for a few hours before making this recipe.  You can also refrigerate the lotion.

Method

  • Mix in a few drops of peppermint extract to add a delightful winter scent (if desired).
  • That's it!  Easy peasy, and oh so fun!

  • Exact measurements aren't necessary for this recipe.  You can play with the ingredients and add more or less lotion.   More lotion will give you a more oozy dough and less will give you a more powdery snow
Regardless, any combination of these ingredients is bound to be fun!

NOTE: We like to start with a small amount of lotion and add more as we play.  Doing this changes the consistency of the snow dough along the way.

Once you have a mold-able dough you may want to have kids wash their hands and then knead once more.  The mixing process can be a bit messy, but it is totally worth it!

This dough looks and feels SO REAL!  It is soft and powdery just like snow!
It is also mold-able and creates the most fantastic snowballs!

This simple recipe lends itself to all sorts of play!

SNOW DOUGH leaves kids hands soft and hydrated after play, too!  That is always a bonus during the Winter months.  

Tips:
  • Store your SNOW DOUGH in a zip-seal bag or air tight container between play times, and it can be used again and again!
  • Store your snow dough in the refrigerator to keep it extra cold between play times if desired.  
  • If your snow dough dries out at all simply add a bit of lotion and knead it in.  This will revive the dough and return it to the desired consistency.
