Sparkly Winter 2 Ingredient Play Dough

This sparkly play dough is right up our alley! A winter theme plus great sensory play, this activity is perfect for a snow day. Plus, its a breeze to make!

You’ll Need:

  • 1/2 cup hair conditioner
  • 1 cup cornstarch (you will need more to get the right consistency, but this is a good starting point).
  • Blue sparkles
  • Spruce Essential Oil (Optional; gives play dough a Winter scent!)


Measure the hair conditioner into a bowl and then mix in the essential oil and cornstarch. You will most likely need more than 1 cup of cornstarch, but 1 cup is a good measurement to start with.

You are looking for a smooth and soft texture, one that does not break away or crumble when you knead it like bread.

To store it, keep it in a plastic bag. If it happens to get left out overnight or for a few hours it will begin to crumble apart and dry out. You can try adding more hair conditioner and cornstarch as needed to try and get it back to the right consistency to play with.

We absolutely love this easy-peasy craft! This play dough is also the gift that keeps on giving. 🙂 Let us know what you think!
