Glittery New Year's Ball Playdough
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
  • 2 C flour
  • 1 C salt
  • 2 C water
  • 2 TB vegetable oil
  • 4 tsp cream of tartar
  • ½- 1 cup glitter (I used pink, silver, gold, green, and purple)
  • measuring cups- 1 cup, ½ cup
  • measuring spoons- tablespoon, teaspoon
  • large pot
  1. Mix all ingredients in a saucepan (children can help with this step). At this point the playdough will resemble thick pancake batter.
  2. Add approximately ½ -1 cup glitter.
  3. Cook on the stove at medium heat until mixture forms a ball (stir constantly).
  4. Place ball on the counter to cool slightly (it will be very hot coming out of saucepan).
  5. Knead the playdough to smooth out any bumps.
