Snow Play dough

This week we are reading Snowy Day.  Since we have had a warmer than usually winter (which I am NOT complaining about) and no snow in the forecast, I made a batch of “snow” play dough for the kids to play with.

To make the play dough I mixed the following:

  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1/2 cup of salt
  • 1 tablespoon cream of tarter
  • 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
  • 1 cup of water
  • lots of iridescent glitter
  • 2 tablespoons of white paint

Mix in all together in a nonstick sauce pan until it forms a ball.  Turn the dough out and knead it.  Then all you need is some kids and some accessories.  We used: buttons, a piece of orange pipe cleaner (nose) goggle eyes, sticks from outside, a felt scarf and hat, and popsicle sticks.

We used to popsicle sticks to hold our snowman up and keep his hat on his head.
