Playdough activities are always a big hit in this house and making our playdough snowmen was no exception. We used sparkly white playdough with some printable accessories and buttons to make a snowman family.
I made some white playdough by adapting this basic microwave recipe. I swapped half the flour for cornflour (corn starch) to make the playdough brighter and added some glitter after it had been in the microwave.
I cut out and laminated some snowman arms, scarves and faces in a variety of sizes and found a selection of buttons.
We had fun making our snowman family. Harry spent ages playing with the snowmen and then making them melt by squashing them!
We made a few 2D snowmen using biscuit cutters and then Harry made a train of snowballs (with arms and buttons stuck on them!)
We have stored our playdough and all the accessories in a air tight container ready to be used next time.
