Glitter Playdough
Posted On: 2008-09-16


  • 3 cups flour
  • 1.5 cups salt
  • 6 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 3 cups water
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons oil
  • icing food coloring (This paste will color the dough deep rich colors that regular food coloring can not match. Purchase at cake decorating or craft stores.)
  • glitter


Mix the dry ingredients (except the glitter) together in a big pan.

Add the water, oil, and food coloring; stir until the lumps are worked out and the food coloring well-mixed.

Cook the mixture over medium heat and continue stirring until the dough thickens and gathers into a big ball.

When the dough cools, knead in the glitter.

Keep the playdough in an air tight container or a sealed plastic baggie.
