Playdough encourages creative play and keeps the little'ns playing happily for hours on end. Make your own magic glitter playdough using this easy playdough recipe that uses basic ingredients from your kitchen. Oh, did I mention that it smells good too?

What you'll need

2 cups of plain flour

4 tablespoons of cream of tartar

2 tablespoons of cooking oil

1 cup of salt

2 cups of boiling water

Food colouring - we suggest Sleepy Wizard blue or Dream Fairy pink if your kids are Magic Door Pillows fans.

A few drops of lavender essential oil - lavender has a calming effect.

Glitter of your choice - we recommend using biodegradable glitter which is made from plants instead of plastic such as Bioglitter which you can purchase from The Glitter Tribe


    Add all of your ingredients into a bowl and mix them until evenly blended. Then, knead it until you are happy with the results.


    Keep it stored in an air-tight container so that you can get a couple of weeks out of it.

    We hope you enjoy this simple playdough recipe as much as we did!
