This snowman playdough activity is easy and fun. A perfect indoor activity and a great gift for friends!

Updated December 2021

Last year we made candy cane playdough as gifts for our friends. This year we’re making a snowman playdough gift in mason jar snow globes.

Playdough is a great gift to give children – it’s easy to make and encourages endless amounts of creative play!

Here’s a video showing how to make a playdough snowman. Below you’ll find a link to our favorite cooked playdough recipe, and then step by step instructions on how to create your snow globes!

MATERIALS

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Create your playdough snowmen

    First, make a batch of white playdough. You can add glitter and peppermint essential oil to make it extra snowy.

    Then, roll out 3 different sized balls of playdough, and create your snowman!

  2. Add decorative features

    Once you have your snowmen, use beads, googly eyes, and pipe cleaners (and whatever other loose parts you have) to decorate them.

  3. Place snowmen in jars and seal

    Unscrew your mason jar and place the lid upside down on the table. Next, place snowman on top of the lid.
    Then, carefully place the glass jar over snowman and twist to seal.

    Note: we used wide mouth pint-sized mason jars for this project, so the snowmen would fit!

You can add a gift tag if you are giving these as gifts, or just admire the snowmen in their snow globe homes!

We love how these playdough snowmen look in their snow globes! And, as a gift, it is as fun for kids to make as it is for their friends to receive.

And of course, you could do this as a snowman playdough activity without turning them into gifts…
