Just for fun - Homemade Glittered Play Dough


Last weekend we didn’t have much planned since my husband was mostly at work. So I made myself creative and made with the kids…. Home Made PLAY-DOUGH . It is so simple and the kids love it!  

Here’s the recipe for some nice and creative quality fun with the kids: 

Enjoy! 

Homemade Glittered Play Dough

Ingredients:

2 cups flour

1 cup salt

1 tablespoon cream of tartar

2 tablespoons oil

2 cups water

Additions:

For color - add a few drops of food coloring

For smell - you can add a few drops of vanilla extract/essential oils/cinnamon

For texture - sprinkle some glitter   

Method:In a medium sized saucepan, on a low heat, combine: flour, salt and cream of tartar. 

Stir and gradually add water and oil. Keep stirring until the dough forms. It might take a while, just hang in there and keep stirring:

Remove from heat and let cool for a few minutes. Then knead until soft and pliable.  

It should turn from this:

To this:

Divide the dough into 3 balls and press with your thumb into the center of each ball to make a hole (do not go all the way through):

Now here is the fun part for kids: (I would recommend using plastic gloves for this) Add 3-4 drops of food coloring to each ball and knead the dough until the color is blended in: 

This time they chose the pink, yellow and green:

Now for the glitter and scent: Have a blast with the glitter and sprinkle it on. Choose a favorite scent and add a few drops to add the perfect aroma to the dough: 

Knead the dough until all combined, and … Voila! Home-made play dough. 

Now play away!

*Store the dough in an airtight container or a Ziploc bag in the refrigerator. Can last for weeks.
