Snow Dough

Turn your usual play dough into snow dough! Your child/ren will have plenty of fun playing in the "snow" with this dough. They can make snowmen, icebergs, or whatever their little heart desires!  Add some penguin figurines and they can even pretend they are in the South Pole!

 Materials/Ingredients:  Flour, salt, water, oil, cream of tartar, silver glitter, wax paper, wooden spoon, saucepan, measuring cups, measuring spoons, Ziploc bag or air-tight container.
 To make the dough you will need 2 cups of flour,
 1 cup of salt,
 4 tsp. cream of tartar,
 4 tsp. oil,
 and 2 cups of water.  Mix all of these ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat.

 Mix continuously until the mixture thickens and pulls away from the pan.

 Form dough into a ball and place on a piece of wax paper. 
 Allow to cool and then knead until it is no longer sticky.  If the dough is still too sticky, then dust with a little bit of flour.
 After kneading, sprinkle generously with silver glitter.  Knead and sprinkle with more glitter.

When dough has cooled, save in a sealed bag or air-tight container so that it does not dry out.
