Last year I watched fellow KBN bloggers post recipes of various play dough. This year I am happy to join in the fun!
We start off with Snow Dough to celebrate Winter!
Snow dough is basically any kind of dough that resembles snow. Here in the South of China we don’t have snow at all so my children never experienced it.
I looked through many recipes online and suddenly it dawned me: I recently bought baby rice cereal for our 6 months old and realized it had milk and sugar in it. So the open pack has been sitting on the shelf for a month as I feltit was too early to introduce such cereal to mini man.
The consistency of baby cereal is quite similar to snow, just much dryer.
So, the ingredients of our Baby Cereal Snow Dough are simple:
– Baby Rice cereal (I used 250 -300 gr pack)
– Enough oil to make the cereal moist (1 used almost full paper cup of sunflower oil ).
Miss A had great time playing with it – she used some of her play dough cutters and play cutlery. I must note that it was quite a messy play, so since it was raining and we couldn’t use balcony, we played in the bathroom.
Mini Man loved watching his sister play and kept trying to reach for the bowl! Since this snow dough is completely baby and toddler safe and if the child ingests it, it is quite safe. The texture is a bit rough and it can turn into an oily mess, but nevertheless it is a fun activity! You can store the dough in a ziplock bag or in airtight container for some days or even weeks.
