More goodies for my nephews Christmas gifts! Christmas Magic Playdough Im calling it! I Pinterest searched and read over about 5-6 or recipes.
I used The Imagination Trees playdough recipe minus the Glycerin. I wasn’t cooking it so I used hers! Ha ha.
I actually already had Blueberry Pie Moonshine cooking while I made the dough anyways.. Post on that soon! 🙂 I make 99% of my holiday gifts.
2 cups flour
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 cup salt
2 tablespoons cream of tartar (optional)
3/4- 1.5 cup hot water, add as needed
1 Tbs of Vanilla (optional)
2 Tbs of glitter (optional)
Add all the dry together then add water. Mix and kneed until its playdough like.
Her recipe called for 1-1.5 cups boiling water added as needed. I went all gung ho and added a cup of hot tap water, my tap gets super hot.
I had to add about another 1/4 to 1/2 cup of flour to get the desired texture. I added 3/4-1.5 cups for the water to the recipe.
I didn’t add any food coloring, The glitter gives it the ‘magic’. I actually made this ‘Christmas’ mix last year for a mason jar. Some red and iridescent glitter.
There is a bit of others in there…
I added the vanilla just so it would smell nice, smells like a cookie and looks like one! We could call it Christmas cookie playdough too.
Add any extract for scent. I read you could use Kool-Aid for color and scent too.
I probably added about a 2 tablespoons or so of glitter. I threw a sprinkle of green in as well.
From what I read the Cream of Tartar can be optional, it helps with longevity so it lasts longer. You can totally rock out this playdough recipe without it.
I made four half pint mason jars, I needed four for gifts so this recipe worked perfect! I just rolled into a ball then worked into about the size and shape of the jar and plopped it in.
I made a cute mason jar tag you can download if you want to make Christmas magic playdough! 🙂 Use a hole punch for the twine.
You can print this on kraft paper too, the file is transparent. Use any colors, nine tags. Cut them out or just leave squared. I cut them into the shape this time.
Download your tags: Playdough tags KA Styles. Standard size paper PDF format.
The finished jar. The kids will love it, they are at the I love playdough age! Gatta make all these fun crafts while they still like it! LOL. They will get to a point when mason jars are not ‘cool’ anymore! ha ha.
