Glitter Play-Dough


1 cup plain flour

1/2 cup cooking salt

1 cup water

1 tablespoon cream of tartar

1 tablespoon cooking oil - To make is smell good, add a drops of your favorite essential oil!

Food coloring & glitter!

Mix the flour, salt, cream of tartar and water together. Turn the saucepan on a medium heat and stir until a large thick ball happens. Sit aside to cool. Once cool add the oil and food colouring - knead together on a floured board and work the glitter through.

I quadrupled the recipe and used my jam jars to hold the play dough! (it worked out since we've eaten all our jam!)





You can use a 50% coupon at Michael's to get Martha's Glitter collection! Also, to get the bright beautiful colors I used the assorted color dyes and the neon colors! Good Luck and have FUN!

Oh my, you are brave. I have enough trouble controlling the regular playdough mess that my girls make. Does the glitter stay on hands/surfaces? Looks like fun though!
