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!
Twigs from the garden for arms.
Raisins or acorns for eyes. Red tissue paper for scarves.
Some of the playdough snowmen were so happy their smiles we this big.
And some were rather hair-raising.
Let’s make this winter the year when we delight in the cold and the dark.
Gather your children, get cosy, and make memories and connections together.
