SNOW DOUGH — I'm starting to set out a few new winter-y project stations around our home both inside & out for my children to work on as they please. — today, snow dough. Gluten free play dough with peppermint essential oil added in. A simple recipe as with all play dough, except this one uses rice flour which makes the dough extra white and snow-like — 1 cup white rice flour, heaping 1/2 cup tapioca or arrowroot starch, shy 1/2 cup fine sea salt, small splash of oil and 15+ drops of essential oil. Mix together well with 1 cup near boiling water. If it's sticky, I add a bit more starch. — cookie cutters and rolling pins are always fun to have out in a basket but also any little toy animals (especially winter animals!) are fun to have play in the snow as well. Messy at times but worth the joy. — also, mamas! With any extra dough roll into an oval and smush your child's handprint into it. I don't seem to do this every year, and as imperfect as they are, I'm also thankful to have them all these years later!
