Sparkly Snow Playdough

Sparkly Snow Playdough |

This is the easiest playdough recipe I’ve ever made!

It’s the basic recipe below, with no food coloring (obviously), and a small container of iridescent sparkly glitter.

I just love the word sparkly.  And the word glitter. And I love making playdough for the boys who spend hours and hours at our kitchen table with it.

  1. I made some candy cane playdough with glitter in it for my two little boys for Christmas. I think they are going to love the sparklyness too. Maybe I’ll just have to find time to blog about it sometime… maybe after Christmas.

    Love the picture of the little hands playing in the sparkly playdough!

    Have a blessed Christmas!

  2. Just made it and this is awesome! My daughter loves it. The only thing different I did is cooked it a bit longer and on medium heat for a bit.


  3. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe! I made it today with ease!

  4. My 12 yr old made this all by herself for the kids she babysits. It was super easy, but needed to stay on low about four minutes to get thick enough. It snowed here this week and the kids missed four days of school right so their parents will be happy to have something natural and new to entertain their children over the weekend. Now to make cute labels to put on the containers.

  5. hi! just wondering how much this makes and will it stay soft for a while. in a plastic bag? were throwing my son a winter ONEderland birthday and I was thinking about giving this as a favor.

      It makes the amount you see in the picture….Quite a bit. I might double the batch if I were giving it away as party favors. It actually keeps well for a long time in a sealed plastic bag. 🙂

  6. Thank you for your great idea and recipe. I am excited to try this out with my 4 year old and 2 year old this month and linked back to this website on my blog.
