Let's make snow dough and celebrate winter together! The kids will enjoy playing with snow dough while making snow shapes and creations.

Create with us! If your child isn't old enough to play with snow dough, come hang out with us any way.

One little snowflake with nothing to do.
Along came another and
Then there were two.
Two little snowflakes laughing with me.

Along came another, and
Then there were three.
Three little snowflakes looking for some more.
Along came another, and

Then there were four.
Four little snowflakes dancing a jive.
Along came another, and
Then there were five.

Five little snowflakes having so much fun.
Out came the sun, and
Then there were none!

Your kids don't have to wait for an actual snow day to have some wintry fun. Just whip up a batch of this sparkling white play dough. Younger tots will enjoy squishing the clay, while older siblings might like using small twigs, dried beans, and tiny carrot sticks to create Frosty and pals. Other useful props: cupcake wrappers, colorful beads, paper drink umbrellas, egg carton cups, and snowflake cookie cutters.

1 cup flour
1 cup water
1/2 cup salt
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
2 tablespoons white tempera paint
1 tablespoon white or iridescent glitter
A few drops of peppermint extract (optional)
To make a batch, combine all of the ingredients except the peppermint extract (if using) in a medium-size pan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture holds together, about 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat.

Turn the play dough onto a waxed paper–lined counter to cool, about 15 minutes. If you like, knead in peppermint extract for a festive holiday scent. Store the cooled play dough in a ziplock bag in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
