Snow Dough

If you have not tried making "snow" or "cloud" dough yet, you should make it right now! I used 4 cups of flour and 1/2 cup of canola oil for each pan (and added a few more teaspoons of oil until it clumped well. It is light and fluffy like flour, and then it can be clumped up into little balls or mounds, cakes or walls!
The kids played with this for a couple hours. Of course, their little princess dolls came by to play in the snow. It is nice to have pretend snow when the real snow is scarce. I even made Kieran Pie his own bowl of snow:
He really liked scooping it onto the towel. It isn't the cleanest activity, but flour is pretty easy to sweep up. And I imagine it is bettter than ashes. :)
