Recipe for Christmas Play Dough

Christmas play dough

Creating your own theme play dough for Christmas is so simple and will entertain the kids for hours over the Christmas break.

This is just one way you can make your very own christmas play dough that resembles snow with flecks of glitter.

What you will need? 

1 Cup of Flour

1 Table Spoon Oil

1 Cup Water

½ Cup of Salt

2 Teaspoons of Cream of Tartar

2 Teaspoons of Gold Glitter

How to make:

  1. Mix all ingredients together in a saucepan with a whisk to remove lumps.
  2. Cook over low heat stirring with a wooden spoon.  The mixture will thicken and become a big blob.
  3. Take play dough of the heat and turn out onto the bench.
  4. Knead until play smooth.

Tips & Ideas:

  • To minimise the transfer of glitter onto hands and play area, add the glitter during cooking rather than kneading the glitter in after cooking.

  1. The twiggy snow tree is a great idea. I didn’t realize it was so easy to create your own play-dough. I have much to learn when it comes to crafty stuff but I do like simple ideas like this!
