Hey party people! Today i’m joining Erinn from Strawberry Swing and Other Things for a kid testesd & mom approved craft!
We love getting crafty over here. These days it usually involves stickers and stamps (i apologize in advance for anyone who gets a present or card compliments of lex)- but we decided to head outside the box and make glitter play-dough. It was a cinch, didn’t take too long, and kept lex busy for over 15 minutes (major score).
The ingredient list is way simple. You need:
* 1 cup warm water
* 1 cup flour
* 2tbs salt
* 2 tbs cream of tartar
* 2 tbs cooking oil
* 1 3oz package of JELLO (we used blue. because lex looooooooves anything blue).
* glitter (optional. but who doesnt like a little sparkle?)
The directions are incredibly simple. Just dump all the ingredients into a pan and mix. Boil on the stove-top stirring constantly until you just. cant. stir. anymore. I pre-measured all the ingredients and enlisted in lex’s help to dump & stir.
Once you’ve stired until you just cant stir anymore- place the playdough on a non-stick surface (think parchment paper or sili-pat) to cool. let it cool about 20-30 minutes. Then knead flour into it until it’s not sticky anymore. After that mix in the glitter and play away!
*ignore the play-rooms turmoil. and the cow tattoo on lex’s foot.
