At Little Squigglers Peterborough we love exploring and creating with playdough. I always use ‘homemade’ playdough so I can make it coloured, textured and scented to fit with weekly themes.
This week in sessions we explored the Gruffalo’s Child by Julia Donaldson. I wanted to make a ‘Snow dough’ which was soft, white and that I could add glitter to.
I prefer to use no cook recipes for making dough, so I don’t need to stand and stir it while it is on the hob. Little Squigglers Peterborough HQ is too busy for standing by the hob! I used the following recipe to make my snow dough:
2 cups of cornflour
1 cup of salt
2 tbsp cream of tartar
2 cups of boiling water
Sprinkles of silver glitter
- Measure and add all dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl.
- Mix and add oil.
- Pour water in and mix using a spoon.
- Once mixed, leave mixture until it is cool enough to put your hands in.
- Knead mixture until it is smooth and soft.
- Add glitter.
Making ‘snow dough’ couldn’t be easier! Why not adapt the recipe? Step 6 of the recipe is where you can add scents, or texture to your dough. I would love to see pictures of your dough, creations you have made with your dough and ideas for adding to the recipe 😊
