How to Make Snow Dough (Taste Safe)

Share on Pinterest

So EXCITED to be back this year with another 12 months of awesome sensory doughs! I am once again trying to make each of these recipes taste safe. My 2 year old is still tasting everything!

To kick off month 1 we are playing with snow dough.

To make this snow dough I modified my cloud dough recipe (Oh how I LOVE that cloud dough recipe!)

I used 8 cups of cornstarch and 1 cup of olive oil. To mix I use a large zip lock bag and split the mix in half. Meaning I added 4 cups cornstarch and 1/2 cup oil then mixed well.

I was also feeling brave and added 2 drops of peppermint essential oil, for some reason that smell makes me think of snow.how to make snow dough

Once mixed in the bag I poured it out into the sensory bin and gave it one more mix up with my hands. It smelled SO nice!snow dough recipe

I then added some glass color rocks and a penguin or two.

I also supplied the kids with the tongs from this fine motor set for picking up the rocks and moving them around. This kept them busy with a little fine motor exercise for awhile.

THEN I showed them that they could actually make snowballs! Oh the JOY.

This snow dough feels just like snow (minus the cold!) it also makes that crunchy sound when you squeeze it.snow dough sensory dough snowballs

I love an engaged sensory bin. Also take a look at how we used this same bin of snow dough for our exploration of penguins last week in playful preschool.sensory bin with snow dough

Pin this snow dough recipe for later!

  1. So excited to make this for my charges! Would you suggest storing the dough in the sensory bin or ziplock? How long is it good for??

  2. Tried this with my 3 year old and one year old. I was very excited that this was made with all edible items since my one year old puts everything in his mouth. This did not form any sort of dough. It was just corn starch with a few chunks of oil in it. We could not use it to form balls. They did have fun making a big mess though!

  3. I love the idea of taste safe! My sons school does snow in the sensory table and they use baking soda and shampoo. The class he was in used coconut shampoo which smelled amazing!
