We have no snow. It’s the middle of January, and, except for a very short-lived snowstorm at the end of December, there has been nothing. Aside from the obvious drought issues this will probably cause in the summer, my kids have been horribly disappointed. One snowman is all we’ve eked out this year. So I supposed it’s no surprise that they were thrilled by the idea of snow dough.

This stuff is fun to play with. It’s got a silky texture that’s fun to mash in your hands. It squishes together well to make elaborated snow scenes, and it leaves your hands moisturized when you’re done playing. It is slightly messy to make — make sure you mix it together in a much larger bowl then you think you need.

We also added white glitter to this batch, which made it gleam like fresh fallen snow. Then, the kids smushed and rolled and otherwise entertained themselves with the indoor snow.

  • 1/2 cup lotion
  • 1 cup cornstarch + a little extra
  • glitter (optional)


  1. In a large bowl, mix together lotion and cornstarch. Start with a spoon and change to your hands to knead until the mixture forms a dough.
  2. Add more cornstarch as needed until dough is no longer sticky.
  3. If you’re using glitter, knead it in now.
  4. Enjoy! Store in an airtight container so it doesn’t dry out.

  1. If we are making this for a church group of 4-8 girls. Do I need a cup of each ingredient for each girl or could one batch work for multiple girls?

    1. Each batch makes a little over a cup of dough. I regularly split one batch between my two kids. Depending on how much dough you want each kiddo to have, you could probably get away with 2 girls per batch.

    1. As long as you’re playing with it when it’s out and put it in an airtight container when it’s not in use, it will stay soft. If you leave it our in the air for several hours, it will harden.
      I would say it’s as easy to clean up as other playdoughs.

    1. Hand lotion. I used Suave Advanced Therapy in the images. I’ve also used multiple other hand lotion brands, but I can’t remember their names now. We use whatever we have in the house and adjust the cornstarch amount as noted in the instructions.
