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.
Some of the kids creations.
May I introduce robot snowman, grandma snow, and Ms. Hollywood snow lady.
