Homemade Glitter Playdough

I’m always looking for new, creative and frugal ways to entertain my little munchkins.  Today I decided to pull out a few basic ingredients and give it a shot at making some homeade glitter playdough.  They say life begins at the end of your comfort zone right?  In this case, I can mark this in my book as a victory in my mothering adventure!


What you need:

1 cup of 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

1-2 teaspoon silver glitter


Get your extremely cute little one and place all the ingredients in a saucepan.  Mix.  Then heat until the dough thickens.  It’s that EASY!
