Snowman Playdough

Playdough activities are always a big hit in this house and making our playdough snowmen was no exception. To make this snowman playdough 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 corn flour (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 cookie 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 an air tight container ready to be used next time.

How many snowmen are going to be in your playdough snowman family? 

If your toddler or preschooler wants to do another snowman-themed activity after playing with this snowman playdough maybe try making a melted snowman using puffy paint or a cotton snowman using cotton balls.
