Here is a another favorite at our house – Sparkly Galaxy Playdough! I use the same base recipe for all of our playdough creations and change up the ingredients depending on what theme I want to create. This is one is great to use with outer space cookie cutters.

2 cups All-purpose Flour
2 teaspoons  Cream of Tartar
2 tablespoons Vegetable Oil
1/2 cup Salt
2 cups Hot Water
Black Food Coloring
Purple Food Coloring 

Place all dry ingredients (flour, salt, cream of tartar) in mixing bowl. Mix well. In another bowl mix together food coloring with hot water. Add oil to colored water and stir.

Pour liquid ingredients into dry ingredients and stir until completely mixed.

Pour mixture into pot on low heat. Continue to stir until it forms the feel and consistency of playdough.

Remove from heat. Knead with spoon until it is cool to the touch, sprinkle in plenty of glitter, then knead with hands.

Store in an air-tight container or Ziploc bag.
