How to Make: White Glitter Playdough Recipe

Pin It
I am sharing with you my favorite playdough recipe.  I make almost all my playdough this way because it  seems to be the easiest to add extra things to(food coloring, scents...)  when making and it keeps the best.   I have yet to be disappointed with it and hope you can enjoy this recipe as well.

How to Make: White Glitter Playdough

What you need: 

1 1/2 c cornstarch, 1/2 c flour, 2 c water, 2 tsp cream of tarter, 1 c salt, 1 Tbs oil.   Sauce pan, measuring cups, mixing spoon, and wax paper. Glitter!

What to do: 

put all dry ingredients in sauce pan and then add water and oil.  Cook over med high heat.  Continue to stir while cooking.  After about 5 minutes roughly it should start to clump.  Keep stirring every few minutes.  The playdough will start getting sticky fast at this point stir continuously.  The playdough always sticks to my spoon as I am stirring and when it looks like playdough remove from the pan.  I place mine on wax paper to cool.  Let cool at least 30 minutes before kneading.  Once the playdough has cooled separate into as many pieces as you want to make glitter colors for.  We did 4 separate balls of white playdough.  We kept one white.  The other 3 I placed on to paper plates.  I had my son pick out 3 glitter colors he wanted to use.  We then flattened the playdough on the plate and sprinkled glitter on.  Last my son mashed the playdough to mix in the glitter.  As he moved on to the next color I went behind him and gave the playdough a kneading:-)  We both had fun making the playdough but we always have more fun playing with it.  FYI:  you could just add the glitter to the playdough while cooking if you want just one color.

  1. Thank you for this great idea. I hope that you do not mind I have done a post all about the different fake snow ideas that we have used and have used this idea. I have placed a link to your idea so hope that this is OK. This is the best playdough I have made!

  2. hmmm, I see you use corn starch in yours, maybe thats the trick. Yours seems more white than mine. mine came out sort of creamy beige but I didn't use any cornstarch, just regular flour - I'll try your recipe next time

  3. I think we'd make some snowmen! :) Pinning this and featuring you on my Kid's Co-op post this week. Thanks!

  4. I just made this play dough today and I really like it! I think it will be my new recipe. Thank you!
