BUT! I came up with this yesterday to give as Christmas gifts to my kindergarteners. I am so excited to see their faces when I tell them they are getting snowman poop! (WARNING: IF YOUR CHILD IS IN MRS. FRANDSEN'S KINDERGARTEN CLASS, YOU'LL HAVE TO DISREGARD THIS POST! ;))
This is the softest playdoh and it smells so good. I tried to find scentless conditioner so I could flavor it with peppermint extract. I was disappointed when I couldn't find any but the coconut conditioner made it smell amazing! Really, the possibilities of things you could do with this recipe, are endless.
So without further adieu. I give you, Snowman Poop.
Snowman Poop (non-edible)
2 parts cornstarch
1 part conditioner
Styrofoam containers with lids (I bought mine from Old Grist Mill for $0.05/each!)
Black & Orange Sharpie
Ribbon for a scarf (optional)
Throw it in a bowl. Mix it up until it's not crumbly. Let it sit for about 10 minutes until soft.
*I used 6 cups cornstarch (which was 2 boxes), 3 cups of Suave Coconut Conditioner (+ a few extra squirts until it wasn't crumbly), and ended up with a good size ball for my 21 kids. Total cost was under $5!
I thought it was only appropriate that snowmen's poop was sparkly so I added blue glitter to the boys, and pink to the girls.
Then I drew a snowman face on the lid.
You can add ribbon, washi tape, or twine to make the snowman look like it's wearing a scarf.
And move over Dr. Seuss! I wrote this cheesy poem to attach to the scarf. Feel free to download and print for yourself.
And wa-la! It's sure to be a hit!
