Fun with Snow Play Dough

17 Dec


I saw this idea on the fantastic blog Imagination Tree.  I love this blog and get lots of inspiration from here. Do visit this link to get all the instructions on how to make this play dough. It is SO simple and it does behave just like snow! Not the freezing cold, icy snow but the lovely fresh soft stuff that is crunchy and clean.


We had so much fun playing with this. We started off making a little snowman and some snowballs and then we got some animals out to play in it.

I used a piece of card to make a little igloo and Thomas loved burying the seal in it and making it snow on top of the igloo. We have had ours in a tupperware pot for over a week now and it is still as good as new. You could add little people or Lego to this for even more imaginative play.

Living in Plymouth we very rarely get snow. This may be our only opportunity to build a snowman this winter!

    This looks really fun – I do love Imagination Tree. Did you find it was messy?

      No it wasn’t really. We just swept up the bits off the floor – although we do have a tiled for so I guess it would be more messy if you had carpet.
