Snow play dough recipe

Play dough is cheap and easy to make and once you've made it, your child will enjoy playing with it for hours.  This recipe makes an all-white play dough. No need to add messy food colouring!



  • 1 cup of oil
  • 6 cups flour
  • 250ml (1 cup) water
  • a large bowl
  • a wooden spoon


Mix ingredients together in a large bowl, adding a little of the water at a time.

Do not use the entire cup of water if dough is combining without it.

Knead well until the mixture is soft, smooth and supple.

Squish away!


  • Keep in an air-tight container when your child has finished playing with it so it doesn't dry out.
  • Add some silver glitter to the mix - great if you're making Christmas decorations.
