Snow Dough

Snow Dough

This is a fun winter version of play dough.  It has a very cool sensory feel to it, and feels very silky and is crumbly.  You can adjust the texture a little bit to make it more dry and powdery, or a little more sticky.

Snow dough can get a bit messy so be sure to use trays or another method of making clean-up easy!  I personally love using plastic trays from the craft store to help contain messy projects like these.


2 cups cornstarch

1/3 cup vegetable oil

6 tablespoons glitter (preferably fine glitter)

Snow Dough


Mix the cornstarch and vegetable oil.

Knead in the glitter.

If you need to adjust the consistency, add more oil or cornstarch.

My girls really enjoyed playing with their snow dough, especially since it had a really fun sensory texture to it – and they were also very excited about the glitter!

Store in a container when not in use, like a baggie or plastic container.



Inspired by a project seen in Family Fun magazine.

    I added essential oils as well. Thieves and lemon were my choice. Smelled great and good to have the thieves during bug/flu season.
