Based our our favourite no cook play dough recipe, this snow version has one important variation: we use corn flour instead of regular flour, to get a much whiter dough. And of course we added lots of sliver glitter to give a frosty sparkle to the dough.
Snow playdough recipe
Here’s the no cook snow play dough recipe:
2 cups corn flour (cornstarch in the US) I do find cornflour a little temperamental, so be prepared to add more flour if needed
1 cup salt
1 1/2 cups boiling water
2 tablespoons cream of tartar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl until your dough forms – then you’re done and ready to play.
And what do you make with a snow playdough recipe? Snowmen of course!
