Glitter Playdough

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup salt
  • 1 TBSP oil
  • 2 tsp cream of tartar
  • Food coloring (Sue Says: if you want it to smell yummy, use Kool-Aid.)
  • Glitter (Sue Says: the bigger the flakes, the better!)
  • Pot or pan
  • Spatula

STEP ONE: Add 1 cup flour, 1 cup water, _ cup salt, 1 Tbsp vegetable oil, 2 tsp cream of tartar to the pot or pan. Stir until smooth.
STEP TWO: Add food coloring or Kool-Aid. (Sue Says: you can either make one big batch of the same color or separate the dough out before adding the food coloring. I doubled the batch and separated it into six smaller bowls.)
[Sue Says: Mix it up! Mix different colors together to create new shades and hues]
STEP THREE: Add glitter. (Sue Says: add a decent amount because some will definitely stick to your hand, but thatÍs half the fun, right?!)
STEP FOUR: Heat the pot on medium and do not stop stirring the mixture. (Sue Says: this step goes by pretty quickly so continue to stir and donÍt let it stick to the bottom.)
STEP FIVE: The mixture will start to get clumpy and change colors but keep stirring. (Sue Says: eventually, the entire mixture will turn a slightly darker shade. I had the best luck flattening the mixture into a pancake and continuously flipping it over.)
STEP SIX: When the mixture has hardened to a dough-like consistency, remove from heat. (Sue Says: I scooped mine out of the pot and right onto the counter.)
STEP SEVEN: After the dough has cooled, knead it a little to make sure that it is done. (Sue Says: if it is a little too gooey, put the dough back into the pot and cook a little longer.)
STEP EIGHT: Viola! Glitter play dough! Let the kiddos enjoy the glittery concoction.
