Arctic and Antarctica Frozen Foam Dough
It’s winter which means for us it’s cold outside. So what better time to learn about the Arctic and Antarctica with frozen foam dough? This was Awesome and the kids learned about so many things while they played with this freezing cold homemade dough.
Frozen Foam Dough
Easy Homemade Frozen Foam Dough
How do you make Frozen foam dough you ask?
* I used a 12 oz. box of corn starch and a 10 oz. bottle of shaving cream.
Mix it up gently
put it in the freezer for a few hours until it sets. (Ours puffed up some and looked liked frozen whipped cream). Of course, this is NOT edible.
Along with the fabulously frozen foam dough, we added the Safari Arctic Toob miniatures to go with our theme.
Let’s explore the Arctic and Antarctica printables were just what I needed to take our sensory play learning to the next level. We read through several great books and learned a lot of fun facts about the Arctic and Antarctica.
I definitely suggest using a world map to enhance your learning.
They loved playing with the frozen snow dough. It was cold, but they didn’t mind. It lasted for a couple of hours and then mom was ready to clean up. Thankfully 95% of the dough stayed in the container.
The next day we finished off our Arctic learning with a few other books and learning activities.
We studied the animals from Antarctica and used these printables and these from Mama of Many Blessings . I just love her Antarctica continent box and knew it would come in handy. I hope you have a chance to explore the Arctic and Antarctica with your own frozen foam dough one day.
