Homemade Unicorn Play Dough
Start by combining flour, water, salt, vegetable oil, cream of tartar, and one tiny drop of one color food coloring. We used pink, teal, and blue food coloring to make this play dough.
Mix the ingredients well and cook on the stovetop over medium heat for a couple of minutes. Stir constantly until you have a play dough like consistency. As you stir and cook it will get less sticky.
Carefully remove the play dough (it will be hot) and let it cool down. Once cooled, roll it into a ball and place in a plastic bags. Repeat these steps for each color of the Unicorn Play Dough.
When all the colors of Unicorn Play Dough are cooled, set them out on the counter, press the center down, and top with matching glitter. Roll and knead the glitter into the play dough.
To make the multi-colored play dough you’ll want to roll each color out into a snake shape as my kids like to call them. Then, lay them all next to each other and roll up together into a ball.
