How to make No Cook Snow Dough…

This makes one biggish ball:


Snow Dough


  1. Add all the dry ingredients (flour, salt and cream of tartar) together and stir.
  2. Add the first cup of water to the dry ingredients along with the oil and give it a stir. If you want to add the optional glycerin – now is the time. This really is an optional ingredient!
  3. Add the remaining 1/2 cup boiling water now, a little at a time until all the flour is absorbed. I usually use almost all the water…
  4. Wait for it to cool to warm and knead like bread.
  5. While kneading add the glitter – as much as you like. It will work its way in as you knead!
