Easy Sparkly Winter Playdough
We made some play dough together at the beginning of the week and ED has been playing with it every single morning! Play dough is really easy to make and has a wonderful consistency.
Here’s how we made made ours:
- 1 cup flour
- 1/3 cup salt
- 1 Tablespoon Cream of Tartar (in the spice aisle of your grocery store)
- 1 Tablespoon oil
- 1 cup of near boiling water
- almost 1 teaspoon of glycerine (this isn’t necessary, but it sure makes the play dough feel smooth. I had to hunt around for ours. I got it at a local pharmacy.)
- 1-2 teaspoon silver glitter
Place all the ingredients in a saucepan. Mix. Then heat until the dough thickens.
The kids all played with this for quite a while. They all spent a lot of time making snowflakes, but I got involved in other things and never came back to take a photo!
Yes, I do still need to change out our Christmas table cloth (haha!!), but honest all the other stuff is put away!!Add a Comment
