snow play-dough

Today, using the recipe from here: we made snow play dough.

  • 1 cup cornflour
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 tbsp cream of tartar
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • few drops liquid glycerine (not essential
  • Mix all of the dry ingredients in a bowl and add the oil
  • Next, pour in the water (adult only if using boiling) and mix it up
  • Leave it for a little while to cool down, in which time it will come together more
  • Knead it until smooth and soft
  • Add in glitter and any scent (if desired)
  • If it's too sticky, add some more cornflour

We mixed all the dry ingredients in a bowl (E enjoyed measuring them out). Then we added the oil and stirred it. Then I added the boiling water and mixed it. It seemed very runny. We left it awhile. When it had formed a dough consistency we added some snowflakes and glitter and made snowmen and homes for our penguins!
