It’s starting to get cold outside, but since we don’t live near the snow, we decided to make play dough snowmen instead. We used this simple play dough recipe and added peppermint extract to give it a nice wintery, fresh smell. To decorate we used things we had around the house like googley eyes, beads, sticks, ribbon, and pipe cleaners. The kids had a blast and made cute snowmen families. This is a fun activity to try at home, or to package up as an inexpensive gift for friends.
Play Dough Recipe:
3 cups flour
¾ cups salt
3 tablespoons cream of tartar
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 ¼ cups boiling water
1 tablespoon peppermint (optional)
Stir all the dry ingredients together, then add vegetable oil, peppermint and boiling water. Stir together with spoon and once it cools down, knead it together with your hands. Now, let your little ones get creative. Hope you enjoy!
