Homemade 5-Minute No-Cook Glitter Playdough


Homemade 5-Minute No-Cook Glitter Playdough

I almost can’t count how many batches of playdough I made over the school holidays. I made a handful of batches of Thermomix Playdough, and some No-Cook Playdough too. I decided to mix it up and make some glitter playdough too, because why not? This one takes less than 5 minutes to make, and then it’s ready to play with. It’s warm when it’s finished to break it up into small batches before handing over to the kids – so it cools quicker.

It makes a small batch, so you can double or triple the recipe to make more. I just wanted a small batch for the girls to play with.

    Does it look glittery because of the salt? Or is glitter missing from the recipe? Love homemade play dough.

  • This is the no-fail recipe I use all the time too. I actually much prefer the texture of this homemade version compared to store-bought playdough.
    And sometimes I add some fragrant oil (lavender or eucalyptus) so it smells divine.

  • Ooh how I love glitter! I have so many wonderful memories of playdough from when I was a kid. Who ever would have guessed that some flour and salt could be so much fun?!!

    I use coconut oil instead of regular oil. Life changing
