Party Play Dough Recipe

Party Play Dough is a fun, bright and colourful play dough with 100s & 1000s sprinkles kneaded through it.  I have named it Party Play Dough because I associate 100’s & 1000’s sprinkles  and bright colours with parties.  This would be a great play dough to have as an activity at a child’s birthday party.

What you will need? 

1 cup plain flour

1 tablespoon oil

1 cup water

½ cup salt

¼ cup 100’s & 1000s sprinkles

2 teaspoons cream of tartar

2 teaspoons yellow food colouring

How to make it? 

  1.  Pour all dry ingredients, flour, salt and cream of tartar together in a saucepan.
  2. Add oil, food colouring, and water to dry ingredients.
  3. I use a whisk before heating as I find this helps remove lumps and blends the ingredients.
  4. Cook over medium heat constantly stirring until it becomes a thick blob.
  5. Then turn out onto a clean surface and knead into a smooth blob.
  6. Allow the play dough to cool before kneading in the 100s & 1000s.
  7. Store in a plastic zip lock bag or air tight container.

Other Tips: 

  • If the play dough is too warm the 100s & 1000s will melt.
  • I also found that warm hands melted some of the 100s & 1000s during playing with it.  I had some in sprinkles in a small bowl to add to the play dough during play time.
