I made this Fairy Play Dough for Amelia’s Fairy birthday party. It turned out so well! It’s hard to tell by the picture, but the play dough is completely sparkly! I found the recipe from Homemade by Jill via Skip to my Lou. (Pop over for a great tutorial!) This is such a great recipe, the play dough stays nice for weeks! The batch I made three weeks ago is still soft and supple!
Fairy Play Dough
Adapted from Homemade by Jill
1 cup flour
1 cup water
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon oil
1/4 CUP of salt
3/4 cup of glitter
Combine flour, water, cream of tartar, oil and salt. in a medium pan over medium heat.
Stir continuously until the mixture forms a ball around the spoon.
Remove from heat and dump dough onto a clean surface.
When it’s cool enough to handle, shape into a ball and cut the ball into quarters.
Use the food coloring to color the dough. Tip: if you rub a bit of shortening into your hands before you start kneading the coloring into the dough, it will decrease the likeliness of you staining your hands! Cool, huh!
Once it’s colored roll the dough flat and sprinkle the glitter over it.
Fold the dough over itself, sealing the glitter inside.
Continue kneading until all the glitter is incorporated.
Store in airtight containers.
I rounded out the rest of the favor bag with glittery fun foam stickers, a ring pop, and a few items scored from the Dollar Spot at Tarjay: candy buttons and stickers, Tinkerbell socks, and a glittery pencil.
