Sparkly Space Glitter Play Dough

Creative Ideas:


Thom has been learning about space at preschool lately and wanted to try and make some more space games for home. 

So we decided to make some space play dough based on the really easy glitter play dough we made last year

I've included the recipe here again for you. The only changes I've made this time was to add 3 tablespoons of glitter and 


What you need:
  • 1/2 cup of salt (the basic supermarket kind)
  • 1 cup plain white flour
  • 2 tablespoons cream of tartar (find this in the cooking aisle)
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 tablespoon oil (sunflower or vegetable is fine)
  • black food colouring 
  • fine glitter 
  • Air-tight containers for storage 
Steps: 
1. Mix all dry ingredients together in a pot.

2. Add all wet ingredients to the dry ingredients including food colour to your desired colour (1-2 drops is usually plenty).

3. Cook on a medium heat on the stove for 3-5 mins, stirring constantly. Mixture might look a bit lumpy for a while and then suddenly come together to a thick (almost) play dough consistency.

4. Remove the pot from the stove and add your glitter (use however much you like). I used 3 tablespoons for a single batch of play dough. Mix well.

5. Once glitter is combined you can scrape the play dough into a container. The container needs to be air-tight. 

Hope you enjoy this cool take on my glitter play dough!

Happy creating!
