The other day I found myself making 7 batches of play dough for my kid’s birthday party gift bags. I love this recipe because it is so soft, smooth, and easy to make. (It
reminds me of the store bought stuff). Since their party was Disney Frozen
themed I made a cute Olaf printable gift tag so Olaf himself can invite kiddos to play…”Do you want to build a snowman? (I am planning on sharing photos of the birthday party, and all things Frozen. Until then you can see a glimpse of our Frozen party here on

Sparkly Snow Play Dough Recipe

I love this play dough recipe because it is so soft and sparkly…perfect for little hands to enjoy some creative sensory play, one of our favorite types of activities! 

1 C. Flour
1 C. Water
1/4 C. Salt
1 T Vegetable oil
2 tsp Cream of Tarter
White/Silver Glitter

1.  Mix all the ingredients together and cook on medium heat and stir constantly. You don’t want it to burn. The mixture will get hard to stir and look like cookie dough (top right photo). Remove from heat and let it cool. Add glitter and knead dough, then it’s ready to be played with.

If the dough feels a bit stiff, add drops of water and knead it in until the dough has reached the right consistency.

Olaf Snowman Building Kit

For the perfect kid friendly (and budget friendly) gift bag, put together a snowman building kit. I quickly gathered some things from our craft supplies and tucked them into a snowflake bag I found at Jo-Annes Fabric store. Kids will love the opportunity to be creative, and parents/teachers should appreciate a non-sugary treat being handed to their kiddos.  
1 Snowman cookie cutter (optional)
2 Googly eyes
3 Buttons
1 Orange triangle cut from a foam craft sheet  
2 Mini popsicle sticks (We painted ours brown)

  1. when I scrolled down to the play dough I said, "how pretty!" Love the gift bag idea and using play dough instead of candy.
