No-mess and efficient glitter cleanup: Glitter Play dough

No-mess and efficient glitter cleanup: Glitter Play dough

How do you cleanup a Glitter mess on a tray? oops! Ignore the blog title:-)

Roll homemade play dough/store bought on the Glitter mess and knead the dough well so that the glitter doesn't flake off

Glitter Play dough for Christmas!

I don't prefer to use Glitters at our home because of the mess. But CJ loves glitters and she wants to use them for crafts. I was just wondering how to cleanup the glitter with out wasting, this method works perfectly. Try it out you would be thrilled to see the glitter get cleaned up in seconds and the kids will be excited to play with the glitter play dough!

Regarding the play dough,we made a batch of cooked Play dough, recipe from Tinker lab site. They turned out super soft! Thanks to Rachelle, Tinker lab for the wonderful recipe!

  1. I have boys, and I don't like glitter either, so we don't use a lot of it in our house. I made my first batch of play-doh yesterday, and I'm going to start adding glitter to homemade batches from now on to get rid of it!


  2. This month I made my first batch of play dough with glitter and my little boy loves it. I had never thought of using play dough to clean up a glitter mess though! Very clever! I am a new follower :)

  3. What a brilliant, 'glittery' idea. Agree - making playdough and rolling them on the glitter mess is like two purpose achieve in one shot! Fab tip!

  4. Oooh yes this is exactly what we did to contain the glitter! Definitely the best way to cope with the glittery mess!

  5. Pretty cool! I'm stopping by from the Mingle hop and following by gfc and facebook. I'd love if you'd stop by my blog too.



  6. Love it, I know my girls would get a kick out of glittery play dough as well.

    Thanks for sharing on Monday Madness.
