5 Minute Homemade Glittery Playdough
Many moons ago when my oldest daughter was a preschooler I discovered Martha Stewart. Not that I’d been living under a rock or anything, social media wasn’t a thing YET.
Martha began showing up on regular TV segments and one day was making Homemade Playdough. Not food for once, but something FUN!
I thought “what the heck” I’ll give it a shot! I made her recipe and my daughter really enjoyed the stuff for quite some time. I, on the other hand, felt rather domestic!
Fast forward to 2013 and I have another preschooler who enjoys dough. Yes, my kids are rather spread out. But the fact was still the same, that kids love playdough.
This time her preschool teacher supplied each parent with a Homemade Playdough. A recipe that she’s been using for 20+ years.
I signed up to make a batch to donate to her classroom. I’d forgotten how fast you can whip it up in your own kitchen.
This led me to make a couple more batches for my 4 yr old to use at home. But to make it just a tad more exciting and different from the gunk that comes in yellow tubs, we added GLITTER!
Nothing better than a glittery mass of dough just waiting to be rolled, cut, squished into shapes and smashed back into a big old pile once again.
If you’ve never made it at home before, it seems quite daunting, but please give it a whirl. It literally only takes 5 minutes.
The hardest part is allowing the dough to cool off before letting your kids play with it. I may not be Martha Stewart, actually quite far from it, but what I did learn is that sometimes even Martha can make the easiest recipe in the world and have it be a ball of fun.
