Playdough is always fun but add some glitter to a basic recipe and you have delightful new fun.  I viewed this recipe on Pintrest at Tradewinds Tiaras and I wanted to share this cute idea.  The recipe for the dough is the best that I have found and the kids love it.  Enjoy.  This is the recipe for the dough. 

Homemade Sparkling Playdough Recipe

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup salt
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 Tablespoon oil
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • food coloring
  • glitter
1)  Add food coloring to water for easiest, even distribution.  This is especially helpful if you're using a gel or paste food coloring.

2)  Place flour, salt, colored water, oil, and cream of tartar in a large saucepan.  Cook over medium high heat, stirring constantly, until it turns into playdough.

3)  Turn dough out onto the counter to let sit until it's cool enough to knead.  Flatten a bit on the counter, and sprinkle generously with glitter.  Knead the glitter into the playdough.  If you want more sparkle, repeat this step.

4)  Store in an airtight container.  One batch of this recipe filled four jam-jars perfectly.
