2-Ingredient Snow Dough

What’s better than snow? Snow Dough! The joy of snow without the cold and the wet. Making yours is super easy and requires only two ingredients!

You Will Need:

  • Cornstarch
  • Cheap White Conditioner
  • Glitter
  • Medium Bowl
  • Stirrer
  • Mason Jar
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors

To Begin:

  1. In a Medium Mixing Bowl combine 1 cup of cornstarch and 1/2 cup of conditioner together. We’re using Suave Coconut Conditioner. Make sure whatever conditioner you choose smells how you would like the dough to smell. If you’re sensitive to smells try using a scentless conditioner. While mixing, sprinkle in your favorite color(s) glitter. Add as much or as little as you’d like.
  2. With your stirring stick, stir together ingredients. If you find your dough is too sticky, sprinkle in cornstarch until the texture is as desired. If your dough is too dry, try adding a little more conditioner.
  3. When your dough is smooth, not too wet, and not too dry, it’s ready to handle.
  4. To keep our “Snow Dough” fresh we’ll put it in a tightly sealed mason jar.
  5. Cut and tie a cute ribbon around the neck of your mason jar.
  6. Gift or play!

To Avoid the Mess:

  1. Pre-mix your snow in a large bowl, but leave out the glitter.
  2. Give each resident a Mason Jar and a paper plate.
  3. Allow them to scoop up their own snow dough and put it in their Mason Jar.
  4. With an array of glitter choices available, allow your residents to pick their favorite color(s) of glitter.
  5. With your resident’s paper plate in front of them, dump the dough out onto the plate. Sprinkle glitter on top of the dough. Mix thoroughly and play!
  6. Include googly eyes, toothpicks, and orange triangles cut from construction paper for your residents to build their own snowmen!

Sensory Snow Bin:

  1. Place paper plates or wax paper out on a table for your residents.
  2. In a large bin/tray/unused litter box, combine and mix your cornstarch, conditioner, and glitter. Leave out in the middle of the table. I recommend a container that can be sealed.
  3. Supply tools to play in your Snow Dough. Shovels, pales, cookie cutters, rolling pins, and plastic cutlery.
  4. Allow your residents to play as they please!

Father’s Day Photo Magnets

Father’s Day Photo Magnets

Mother’s Day was just this past week, but aren’t you already thinking about Father’s Day?! If you remember, our craft for Mother’s Day entailed turning a mason jar into a photo vase. (You can view that tutorial at https://www.mycorwin.com/mothers-day-photo-vase/ ) We hope you held onto your mason jar lid – you’re going to need it for this craft!

You will need:

  • Mason Jar Lid (2 pieces)
  • Photo of you and Dad
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Super Glue
  • E6000
  • Magnet (available at Walmart)

To Begin:

  1. Print out an image of you and your Dad together – you may have to adjust the size so that it’s small enough to fit within the diameter of the mason jar lid.
  2. Once you have the right size photo, lay your mason jar lid on top of the part of the image you wish to cut out. Holding it down with one hand, use a pencil to trace around the lid with the other.
  3. You should be left with a circle surrounding you and your Dad. Using your scissors, cut out the circle you just drew.
  4. Place the photo aside. Next, use super glue to attach the two pieces of the mason jar together so that they don’t come apart. Squeeze together and allow time to dry.
  5. Next, add a few drops of super glue to the inside of your mason jar lid. Align and place your photo inside.
  6. Flip over your mason jar lid, using a small amount of E6000 (an industrial strength glue) attach a magnet to the center of your lid.
  7. Allow time to dry.
  8. Attach to your fridge or gift to that special father figure in your life!
