We used the book as a launching point to inspire our newest playdough play invitation.
To begin with I made up a batch of our basic cooked playdough and kept it white.
I added about 1/4 cup of white glitter as we kneaded it.
For our other playdough materials I added sticks, Playmobile hats, pony beads, colorful buttons and small twigs. The Playmobile hats were key, especially as we have such a variety of them and some of the hats perfectly matched the jobs in the book.
We read the book again (although we probably didn't need to by this point and time) and then the boys started creating their snowmen.
The boys created their snowmen by rolling three balls and stacking them, just like a real snowman. Then they added pony bead eyes, stick arms, and hats. Big Brother set out to make a whole family of snow people.
Little Brother needed a little help with his snow people, especially with the balls, and then they wound up a little flatter as he played with them.
We've played with the whole set several times already, each time creating different scenarios for the snowmen to work in.
We love finding fun ideas for playdough inspiration.
