So I was browsing Pinterest the other day and found this super-easy recipe for Indoor Snow on Craftulate. While snow was forecast for Northern Ontario today, I’m hoping we won’t see any of it for quite some time. Still, I thought it might be fun to whip up the indoor version for my little friend to play with.
Now, having played with the end result, I’m not so sure that “Indoor Snow” is the best name for it. It’s not really very snow like at all (I know, I know … call me Canadian). So I thought we should call it by it’s other name, Foam Dough. It’s a light dough that feels springy in your hands but that crumbles easily, and is SO much fun!
-food colouring (optional)
1. Squirt some shaving cream into a bowl and stir in a few drops of food colouring (if desired).
2. Dump in a roughly equal amount of cornstarch and stir until it looks good. Add a touch more shaving cream if needed.
How’s that for super-easy?
The dough will be crumbly until you start to play with it and squish it together. And of course, it will fall apart quite easily. We put our dough on a tray at the kitchen table for easy clean-up, because this is one activity that does make a mess.
