Good evening scientists! My little scientist and I got glitter inspired today and decided to make our own Glitter Play-dough. It was a bit messy but a lot of fun.

  2. Add in 1/2 cup of water and 2 Tablespoons of vegetable oil to the mixture and mix thoroughly. You will need to use your hands to finish kneading the dough. If the mixture feels very sticky after it has been kneaded together then add a bit more flour.Enjoy your new DIY Glitter Play-dough. Store in a storage baggie in the fridge.Talking Points

In this investigation we created a new substance from flour, water, vegetable oil, and glitter. This is an example of a chemical change. In a chemical change a new substance is created that can never be changed back into the original form.
