How to Make Glittery “Snow” Playdough

My boys LOVE the snow, but we never get snow where we live…okay, maybe not NEVER, but I think it’s happened about 2 times in the past 25 years! Since my boys are still on Winter Break from school, my oldest came up with the idea of making some winter white playdough to build “snowmen” with. I suggested adding some iridescent glitter to the dough, and it was a HUGE hit!

It doesn’t really show up very well in these photos, but our playdough is FULL of sparkles that makes it shimmer and shine like sunlight on snow!

The recipe makes enough dough for my two big boys to share, but you might want to double the recipe if you have a larger group of children.

This playdough is a super soft and moldable texture, and it lasts for weeks in a sealed plastic bag or container! We’ve had a lot of playdough and pajamas during this winter break!

What You'll Need:

  • 1 cup Flour
  • 1/2 cup Salt
  • 1 cup Water
  • 1 tsp. Oil of Choice (you can use vegetable, canola, coconut oil, etc.)
  • 1 tsp. Cream of Tartar
  • 2 Tbsp. Glitter, optional


  • In a large saucepan, mix together the flour, salt and cream of tartar. Add the water and oil and stir until mixed well. 
  • Place on stove over medium heat, stirring constantly.
  • After a few minutes of stirring, the mixture will reach playdough texture and consistency.
  • Allow to cool (cover with a damp cloth while cooling to avoid drying out), and then knead in the glitter one tablespoon at a time.
