Five simple snow themed messy play activities

Jingle mess, jingle mess, jingle all the way! As December has landed it’s time to don your Christmas jumpers and join the best festive party of the season!

You can have a jolly messy time with at Messy Christmas across the UK or why not try these Five simple snow themed messy play activities at home.

Snowman Foam

We use mouldable soap (or you can even use shaving foam) to make our frosty snowman. We printed and laminated his buttons, hat, eyes, scarf and of course, his carrot nose, to add character. Add scrapers and brushes to explore the squishy texture of the foam.

Flour Polar Express

We love the simplicity of this snowy train scene, created simply by using a dusting of flour. You could easily replicate this using icing sugar or cornflour, which is great for any gluten allergies. Add your train set and some snowy characters to create the perfect polar express.

March of the Penguins Slime

Our penguins are off marching through the arctic slime. Created by simply grating baby soap and adding hot water, leaving it to set and adding water when you are ready to use, to create a gloopy texture. Head to our Slime blog to learn more about how to make a variety of slimes.

Snowman Soap Mud

Soap mud is so much fun to squish, squelch and explore. We created a snowman using this simple (and messy activity) and you can learn more about how to make Soapmud here.

Peppermint Cloud Dough

Our peppermint cloud dough is the perfect sensory tray to explore for Christmas. Not only does it smell just like Christmas, but it is really simple to replicate at home. Head to our blog to learn how to make cloud dough.
