The recipe is 1/4 cup oil to 2 cups corn flour. And some glitter! We mixed the ingredients together in a bowl. We used baby oil which made it silky soft and smell delicious, you can use cooking oil too.
I used my fantastic lakeland tray - it is amazing, will find a link and post it up! This kept all the snow contained and a mat under. The floor got slippy when even a tiny but of the pily snow got dropped so the mat was a MUST!
Now I have to confess I brought a tube of animals with me - I had planned on it being my farm animals and I thought a snowy farm might be fun - see how the animals coped with the cold...I accidently brought my jungle animals!
