How to Make Glow in the Dark Playdough Instructions

  1. Add your vegetable oil to your hot water. Mix in your food coloring and glow medium.

    Tip: The more glow medium you add the stronger your playdough with glow in the dark. 

  2. Stir up your flour, salt, and cream of tartar. Mix that together well. 

  3. Add your liquid mixture to your dry mixture and stir well. Add in glitter if you would like to use some at this point. If needed add more flower and continue to stir. 

  4. Dump your playdough out on a non-stick surface and begin kneading it. Continue to add flour in small amounts until the dough is no longer overly sticky. 

  5. Continue to knead the dough until it is the texture you want. 

    To Store: this playdough can keep for months as long as you store it in an airtight ziptop bag.

Wow, I never knew you could make glow in the dark playdough. I'm sure kids would love to work with this material. Thanks for the video tutorial!

Whoa! I used to love playdough as a kid and I definitely would have liked it even better if it glowed. I wonder how that works!
