Galaxy Play Dough

We are getting things together for a space sensory bin.  While searching for space things, we came across a recipe for galaxy play dough. It turned out really well and the kids had a great time! 

2 cups flour
1 cup salt
1 tablespoon cream of tarter
2 cups water
2 tablespoons oil
1/2 bottle black food coloring (I also added some blue food coloring) 
Heat water, food coloring, and oil in a pan on medium-high heat.

While it is heating, mix together the flour, salt, and cream of tarter. Add the flour to the liquid mixture and stir. 

Stir until it thickens. 

Remove from heat and place on the counter. After it cools for about 5 minutes, knead the dough. Sprinkle glitter on the dough and let the kids knead the glitter into the dough. We used purple, gold, blue, and silver glitter. Store in a plastic bag.
