Soft as silk, this pure white snow dough lets you bring the snowman making inside. Made with only 2 ingredients, you may have everything you need around the house!

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 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.

[…] Filling: Playdough, rice, flour, and birdseed all work well for filling the balloon. I prefer playdough, as it is less likely to make a mess on the off-chance that your kiddo manages to rip through the balloon. I just steal a little from the kids, usually the nasty mixed-up brown stuff, and they never notice! If you wanted to avoid stealing, you could make some using this easy recipe. […]
