The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats

Make Play Snow and craft a snowy day picture with it. You’ll need

  • powdered Ivory Snow (detergent),
  • water,
  • a mixing bowl,
  • cardboard, and
  • an electric mixer.

To decorate your snowy day picture, you might want pictures cut out of old magazines or greeting cards.


Mix the Ivory Snow and a bit of water in the bowl with an electric mixer.
Gradually add more water and beat on the high speed.

Continue mixing on high speed until the mixture is as thick as meringue when the mixing blades are lifted out of the “snow.” Spread the “snow” on the cardboard wherever you want snow in your snowy day picture.

If you like, to complete your picture, add things cut from old magazines or greeting cards. Stick the pictures in the “snow.” Let the “snow” in your picture dry.
