Snow dough - Creative recipes - Educatall

Snow dough

This dough can be used like regular modeling dough. For a different experience, store it in the refrigerator.



  • 1 box of cornstarch
  • 1 bottle of unscented moisturizing hand lotion (dollar store lotion will do the trick)
  • Glitter (Optional)
  • Peppermint oil (Optional)

For best results, leave cornstarch in the freezer overnight and leave the hand lotion in the refrigerator for a short period of time prior to mixing the ingredients.



  1. Empty the contents of the box of cornstarch in a large bowl.
  2. Add a few drops of peppermint oil to the bowl (if using).
  3. Gradually add the moisturizing hand lotion to the bowl, mixing until mixture forms a ball of dough (like traditional modeling dough). I used half of a 600 ml bottle of lotion.
  4. Use the snow dough with a variety of accessories.
  5. Store the snow dough in an airtight bag in the refrigerator.

Bonus: Your hands will be very soft after playing with this dough.


Note: This dough is not to be used to make items you wish to leave out to dry.

Have fun!
