Vitamin E Snow Dough Recipe

Excited to be joining 12 Months of Sensory Dough Series this year.  Each month I will share a new dough themed recipe with you.  You will be able to see several different recipes and ideas around that one dough. Example this month is Snow Dough.  I chose to create a Vitamin E Snow Dough Recipe and set up a sensory play activity with it.  The other host of this series will be sharing other recipes and ideas on the same type of dough.  They will share their snow dough recipe and spin on it with us all. Be sure to check them out!

What we used/ingredients:


Cornstarch or corn flour in UK


Vitamin E lotion




How to make:

This dough is easy to make.   I  bought this bottle of lotion for a dollar.  So this dough cost about $2 to make.  So really it is cheap and easy to make! I love those play recipes that do not cost a lot and I can make quickly. Pour one box of cornstarch ,or corn flour for UK, into a large mixing bowl.  I bought a ton of these bowls for a $1 a few years ago.  They have come in handy. Now start squeezing in the vitamin E lotion.  I used my hand and mixed the lotion into the cornstarch. I just kept mixing in lotion until it was moldable but still a little flaky, like snow.  The snow dough was so soft and I love the vitamin E lotion scent.

Sensory Play Activity with Snow Dough

 Now that I had my snow dough I set out to let the kids enjoy a sensory play activity.  I grabbed one of my clear trays from IKEA and a few hot wheels.  You can not go wrong with hot wheels and CAT trucks at my house. And since they are always all over the floor no matter how many times I pick them up or I have the kids put them away, it was easy to grab a few for this activity.

 If you can not tell yet we went with a “rescue the cars from the snow” theme activity.  A fun pretend and sensory play activity in one.  Also great for multiple ages.  My 2yr, 3yr, and 6yr all enjoyed playing in the snow dough sensory tray.

 We still have a little snow dough left.  It has kept well for a few days in our tray.  It does dry a little but just add more lotion if you need.  I only used about a 1/4 of my $1 bottle so I have plenty more to use.   The rest of the snow dough is covering my deck.  This is messy!  But I just swept it off and we washed our clothes after playtime.  Do caution and take off their shoes so they do not track this stuff in all over the floors in the house. I just took their shoes and clothes off at the back door and sent them to the tub.  We often wait to do messy play activities until right before bath time.  This way when they are done they can go straight to the tub and clothes can be washed.  It was WORTH it for us.  My oldest played in this for an hour and will still get to play in it again.  Once baby brother and I came in to start dinner the 2 older kids got to play on their own.  This was a big help for me to get dinner ready. Luckily I can still see them from my kitchen through our windows too while on the deck.  This was a success at our house.
