Shamrock Play Dough

| | DIY Ideas


Little ones are drawn to shimmery, shiny, glitter-filled playdough like moths to a flame. And how could they not be? There is truly something magical about this ultra-sparkly St. Patricks' Day Shamrock playdough. It lets kids’ imaginations run wild.

You can make two batches of playdough: Glittery Gold and Shimmery Shamrock. For each recipe, simply add all the ingredients to a pot, mix until the lumps were gone and then cooked over low heat, stirring often.

The dough starts to thicken and pull away from the sides of the pot. Turn off the heat once the dough thickens but is still a little sticky, and allow to cool enough to handle. After several minutes, dump the still tacky dough onto a clean counter and knead it until smooth and no longer sticky.

Glittery Gold Playdough

  • 3 cups of flour
  • 1/2 cup of salt
  • 6 tablespoons cream of tartar
  • 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 3 cups of water
  • yellow food coloring {a couple squirts}
  • 2-3 drops of your favorite essential oil (optional)
  • 1/2 cup or more of gold glitter

Shimmery Shamrock Green Playdough

  • 3 cups of flour
  • 1/2 cup of salt
  • 6 tablespoons cream of tartar
  • 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 3 cups of water
  • green food gel {several good quirts}
  • 1/2 cup or more of green glitter
  • 2-3 drops of your favorite essential oil (optional)
  • Playing with the Playdough

Once cooled, set out a tray with gold coins, tiny shamrocks, a couple leprechaun peg dolls, and heart cookie cutters and invite the kids to play.

Gotta’ love the glitter!
