16th and 17th Days of Christmas: Snowman Dough and Decorating Cookies

Wednesday, December 16, 2015
Happy sixteenth day of Christmas Jackson & Andrew! Santa will be here in just 9 days! Do you want to build a snowman? Let's make some snow dough and build some play dough snowman kits to share with our cousins!

We roughly followed the instructions found here to make our snow dough and build our kits. Each kit contained a big handful of our sparkly, vanilla peppermint scented snow dough, some twigs for arms, noses cut from kabob skewers and colored orange, googly eyes, a few scarfs cut from felt and a few buttons for decorations. Jackson had the job of counting out all of the accessories to make sure they were all even.

Justin kneaded and rolled out our dough until it was nice and smooth.


Andrew made a snowman/deer hybrid.

The little kits went over so well with all of the littles, and Jackson is still playing with his as I type this. So fun!

Our snow theme continued on this day with a bonus activity in the tub. Just two ingredients for this one...baking soda and a little bit of water to make it moldable then put in the refrigerator for a while so it's cold like real snow. It's fluffy and smooth and can be molded into snowmen or snowballs and then dissolves easily in the tub and is perfectly safe to go down the drain.
