DIY Snow Dough Recipe

The weather has been super chilly lately, even on the tropical coast where I am. It’s been beanies and scarves all the way. We’re lucky that we still get beautiful sunny periods, but with school holidays upon us I need to have some indoor activities up my sleeves, so that we can have quality family time together, and also to keep the kids busy {they love being BUSY!}.

As you may already know, I’ve been working with Steggles for almost a year now, to help encourage quality family time together. They’ve supported me in creating a whole heap of fun ideas, recipes and also they’ve generously given away a whole heap of movie tickets so that you can keep up the family time. Check at the bottom of the post for more ticket giveaways. But first, dough!

My kids are CRAZY about playdough. It’s their favourite thing. This snow dough is a fun twist on the traditional dough. You can put the cornflour in the freezer before making this recipe to make it cold, for a more authentic snow dough.

One of the perks of this snow dough, which I loved, is that our hands were super smooth after because of the moisturiser. You can build and play with it like normal dough, it just has a smoother feel to it. The girls said that it felt more like slime {but it’s not wet or as messy!}.


500g cornflour
500ml body moisturiser
1 tube of silver glitter

Place everything into a bowl and mix together. Play around with the consistency. If it”s too wet, add more cornflour.

Another thing I love about a good dough recipe, is that it keeps the kids busy for hours and I can sneak off and do things I need to do; check Facebook, shower, laundry, sit and breathe, or cook dinner. I’ve been making a whole lot of tray bake dinners of late. It’s so easy. I just toss everything on a tray, pop it in the oven and let it cook. It’s not messy, is delicious and healthy too.

I add the rocket, because I love rocket with everything and I think the freshness works beautifully. You could even do a little shaved Parmesan if you were that way inclined.
