sparkly play dough

(The picture doesn't show the sparkle but I promise it's there,
I used the really fine Martha Stewart glitter.)

 Plastic baby food jars work well for storage.

This recipe is cooked and it is much better than the other recipes I have tried which end up kind of grainy and sticky.  This is just like the play dough you would buy at the store but better.

   Sparkle Play Dough Recipe

2 cups flour
1 cup salt
4 t. cream of tartar
2 cups water
2 T. vegetable oil
Food coloring
Combine first three ingredients in sauce pan.  Add water and vegetable oil and stir until mixed thoroughly.  Over medium heat stir mixture continuously until it starts to pull away from the sides of the pan and hold together.  Transfer dough to sheet of wax paper and separate dough for as many colors as you want to make.  Careful it will be hot!  Add a few drops of food coloring at a time until you get your desired color.  Add glitter and knead again.  Store in an air tight container.
