Glitter Play-Dough Recipe

Good Morning & Happy Tuesday. Sharing my favorite Play Dough recipe today. With a handful of ingredients, it’s so easy to make your own play dough. They make great birthday party favors. Of course, mine has glitter in it but if you don’t have to add glitter if you don’t want to {Follow up question: why wouldn’t you want to!?}.

Play Dough Recipe


1 cup of white flour

1/2 cup of salt

2 tablespoons of cream tartar

1 tablespoon of oil

1 cup of water

Food coloring, glitter and vanilla extract


Mix the first four ingredients together in a pan. Add water and mix well. Then, turn on the stove and cook over medium heat. Stir constantly for 3-5 minutes. The dough will become difficult to stir and will form “clumps”.  Remove dough from stove and knead for 5 minutes. You can add food coloring, glitter & a little vanilla extract {to scent your dough} during the kneading process. Store in a plastic bag or a container until use. Enjoy!
