Hot Chocolate Snow Dough

Last winter we bought hot chocolate at the store to try with the kids.  Well I do not know about you but my kids are picky!  They did not like the hot chocolate at all.  I drank as much of it by myself that I could but I did not make it through the whole box.  This poor box sat in the pantry for some  time.  Over the summer I grabbed it at one point to toss it.  Then this idea of creating a play activity with it for the kids hit me.  So I put it back on the shelf and left it for when the time was right.  Today the time was right.  With  Christmas and winter coming up I thought it would be a great time for some Hot Chocolate Snow Dough for a sensory activity with the kids.

I used a tray to place the Hot Chocolate Snow Dough in.  I just loved the colorful mini marshmallows.

We had a nice day for some outside play.  I set the kids up in the play pool on the porch.  Then I let them take over and use their imagination for playtime with what they had.

This is a great hands on afternoon activity for my kids.  They get to explore and learn through their senses.  And, well, it is just fun!  I loved the smell of this hot chocolate snow dough.  I would not recommend tasting it but it should not be harmful if the kids put a little in their mouth.

The boys had fun scooping and molding the dough.  Then they had fun making a big mess in the pool.  The great thing was when they were done with playtime, it was all in one space to make for easy clean up.
