My kids and I started the new year by making glitter Play-Doh today. Glitter for a New Years theme – why not sparkle in the new year?! They all pitched in by adding the ingredients and mixing while it cooked. It was a fun collaboration.
Homemade Glitter Play-Doh
- 1 Cup Salt
- 2 Cups Water
- 2 Cups Flour
- 4 teaspoons cream of tartar
- 4 tablespoons of oil
- 1/4 Cup Glitter
- Mix all the ingredients together, cook on medium heat stirring with wooden spoon constantly until mixture pulls from the sides of the pan. From into a ball on wax paper till cooled. Once cooled I sprinkled silver glitter little at a time and start kneaded into the Play-Doh and keep adding until all the glitter is fully mixed in the Play-Doh.
There are so many different ways you can make Play-Doh, we made peppermint Play-Doh a few years ago at Christmas time. The kids love making it so much that we decided this year to make different themes using different colors and scents so stay tuned for these fun recipes! You are never too old to play with Play-Doh – my 9 1/2 year old (oldest) plays with it for hours!
What fun Play-Doh recipes have you made?
