How to Make Pretend Snow with 2 Ingredients!

We were disappointed with the lack of snow in our garden today

…so decided to make our own! A fab sensory/messy play activity for children.

Easy and hands on for children to make and extremely calming and therapeutic to play with! It’s consistency is a bit like kinetic sand, you can squeeze it to make it like play dough but still sprinkle it like sand.

What do you need?

  • 8 cups of Flour (corn flour is best)
  • 1 cup of Oil (we used veg oil but I’ve heard of people using baby oil)

(Ooh and a change of clothes and a vacuum…it’s very messy!!)

What do you do?

  • Mix the flour and oil together
  • Empty into a tuff tray/container
  • Let them play!

Extend their learning..

  • Why not use it as a way of learning to form letters of the alphabet (see my other sensory alphabet suggestions here)
