No, we do not have snow here. We are so wishing we did though! We are so ready for it. All we have so far this year are very cold temps and a few flurries. We are in the midst of a winter unit and you can't do a winter unit without snow can you? We decided to make our own snow fun!
The other day we decided to make a snowman. How can you make a snowman without snow? Easy! You make snow play dough! Remember back in November when I posted this Pumpkin Pie Play dough recipe? I used it to make snow play dough. I just omitted the pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon. I added peppermint flavoring and very fine glitter. The result? Snow play dough! I love making this homemade play dough so much. The possibilities are endless. Add food coloring to make different colors. If you want scented play dough you can add flavoring or even koolaid. How about some grape play dough? Or lemon, cherry, strawberry? What ever your imagination comes up with! I doubt I will ever purchase play dough again!
