I have joined some other bloggers to share recipes and posts about sensory dough called the Twelve Months of Sensory Dough, and this month’s play dough is snow dough. When I think of snow, I think of white, and since marshmallow fluff worked so well in the sweet potato play dough, then I thought I would use it to make a snowy play dough. It turned out really well and has a bit of a rubbery consistency. It is stiff, light, and stretchy. I kept it in the refrigerator over night and in the morning it was hard as a rock so I put it in the microwave for 10 seconds and it was soft and rubbery again.


I used ½ a cup of marshmallow fluff and a ½ a cup of corn start with a teaspoon of oil to help it blend. I mixed the corn starch into the fluff a little at a time because too much corn starch will make it dry and crumbly. You may not have to use all of the cornstarch.

This is a dough that the kids can help mix, although it can be messy until all of the ingredients get mixed together. Once it was mixed, mine continued to be a little tack, but not much. It is a rubbery and stretchy type of dough.

This dough tastes deliciously like marshmallows.

Recipe for Rubbery Marshmallow Play Dough:
½ cup marshmallow fluff
½ cup corn starch
1tsp. oil

Combine marshmallow and oil (you can microwave the marshmallow fluff for 10 seconds to help with mixing). Mix in the cornstarch a bit at a time to make sure that you don’t use too much.

Fine motor
