Christmas in July Snow Dough recipe.

Christmas in July Snow Dough recipe.

I was browsing through Pinterest earlier this week when i came across this recipe and i thought it would be absolutely perfect for our Christmas in July Glitter celebrations that are coming up, To get into the spirit i made a batch and the kids loved it! 

What is Snow Dough? Snow Dough is silky and mold-able and takes just two ingredients to make.  It’s an amazing sensory dough! And it’s SO easy, bright white and even crunches between your fingers like snow! We experimented and it worked! Snow Dough dough will keep indefinitely when stored in a container with a lid.

 

Recipe for Snow Dough:

2 cups corn flour (corn starch in US)
1/3 to 1/2 of a cup vegetable oil (baby oil can be used as an alternative, but makes the recipe not safe for toddlers or children under 3. So we stuck to vegetable oil just to be safe)
3-4 tablespoons silver glitter ( yay, glitter!)

Before you start you and the little ones will want to wear old clothing or an apron as this is a messy task. Just mix the ingredients together with a spoon until combined, then use fingers to rub the oil right into the flour until its completely integrated. It should feel smooth, slightly damp and will take a form if moulded.

Tip: This can get messy if played indoors, so use a large drop cloth or old table cloth under the tub to make cleaning up easier!

What they are learning as they play:

Literacy: story telling, vocabulary development
Science/ Knowledge & Understanding of the World: combining materials, recipes, geography and habitats
