Rainbow Glitter Play-Doh

A fun craft to make with and play with! This play-doh recipe is a great idea for any kid's party and can be adapted to fit most any color theme.

  • 2 cups white flour
  • 2 cups water, tinted with food coloring (about 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 teaspoons)
  • 1 cup salt
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon cream of tartar
  • Plastic gloves (optional)
  • Airtight containers
  • Coordinating colored glitter

Combine all the ingredients in a saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture holds together, about 5 minutes.

Remove the pan from the heat and set it aside until the dough is cool enough to touch, about 5 minutes. Turn the clay onto a waxed-paper-lined countertop and knead it for 2 to 3 minutes. Roll the dough in color coordinating glitter.

Once the dough is completely cool, pack it in the spice jars or in airtight containers.
