Snow dough ingredients

Anyone else not particularly enjoy the smell of some kid putty? I have scanned the inter-webs for other variations but it just seems over time they don’t keep well. Or they have the same funky smell to them. I have been creating this Snow dough, we call it, and it smells great! Its fun and super easy to clean up when you are all done.

What you will need to make this Snow dough:

Baking Soda

Shaving Cream

Stir stick

Plastic dish

How to make Snow dough

Mix shaving cream and baking soda. I used “gel” shaving cream so mix it with water first to get the shaving cream texture. Then I slowly added the two together. It makes a moldable dough.

Kid activity

I tried to get it to a “play dough” texture. You can also put this in the refrigerator for a cool and snow like effect. Mac even like the texture. This is a big HIT in my book.

This stuff is really easy to make, clean up and smells AMAZING! You can make it creamy or have it crumble just add more or less shaving cream.


We liked ours to be more of a hard dough. This way we could build things like this “Snowman” he created above.
