Kid Craft: Playdough Bling Rings

Today we made some rings out of playdough, rhinestones, and one unusual supply, Ring Pop bases. You know, those candy rings that look like giant gemstones. Well, I discovered they work great for making playdough rings. Here's what we did:

Supplies:
Playdough - see recipe below
Rhinestones or beads
Plastic rings from ring pops

Playdough Recipe

1/2 cup salt
1 cup flour
1 cup water
2 Tbsp Oil
2 Tbsp Cream of Tartar
food coloring

1. Mix flour, salt, oil and cream of tartar in a medium size pot. Add water slowly.

2. Heat on medium until playdough begins to gets thick.

3. Place onto wax paper to cool. Knead dough to desired texture.

4. Add food coloring.

Store in an airtight container. Lasts up to 2 - 3 weeks.

Stack playdough on ring base, add some rhinestones and you've made a playdough bling ring. Let dry or take apart to make another ring.
