I will admit that my craft ideas don’t always turn out the way that I plan them.
This craft was supposed to be called “snow dough,” but because I bought unbleached flour instead of bleached flour, it looks more like sand. I thought I might just play it off and say, “In case you’re missing time on the beach, here is a fun winter craft to remind you of summer.” But I’ll be honest and admit it turned out a little differently than my plan.
That’s OK, it’s still an awesome craft!
Snow dough, moon sand, cloud dough, beach dough — whatever you want to call it, this is a fun and super simple activity for a cold winter’s day like today.
All you’ll need is:
16 cups of flour (bleached if you want white, unbleached if you want sand-colored)
2 cups of baby oil
Pour the flour in a wide, flat plastic tote. Pour the baby oil over the top and mix together. I started with a slotted spoon to get the oil worked in and then mushed everything together with my hands. It helped work the oil all the way through so the sand/dough was less clumpy.
Add toys, spoons, cups or pails. The mixture packs really well so you can build with it, leaves fun tracks, is super soft and smells good.
