Any trinkets you want!
You can really use anything you want! Add in diggers or dinos or your favorite plastic characters. Add in animals or shoves or sparkly gems. Make a snowman or a castle or a sand mountain. The possibilities for play are endless!!!
Mix 3 cups of baking soda with 1 cup of hair conditioner. Stir well and then knead with your hands until fully incorporated.
Pour snow dough into a shallow tray or bowl. Add scoops, bowls, trinkets etc. This one is fun with plastic animals, toy shovels, trucks and more!
A Play Filled Life Pro Tip: Put the snow dough into the freezer for 30 minutes. It will be chilly to the touch and add another layer of fun into your sensory experience!
