Pumpkin Spice Playdough

Celebrate the season with this autumn inspired activity. Squishy and fun, this playdough smells just like pumpkin pie! You may have to remind the kids that it's not actually edible.

You'll need: 

  • 1 cup flour 
  • 1/2 cup salt 
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar 
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice 
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil 
  • 1 cup water 
  • orange food coloring 

Directions:

Combine all the dry ingredients in a nonstick saucepan. 

Add the oil, water, and 5 to 6 drops of orange food coloring. Whisk together until smooth. 

Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until the mixture starts to form into a dough in the center and pull away from the sides of the pan. Remove from heat. 

Place the dough on your counter and let it cool slightly, then knead with your hands until smooth. 

Store playdough up to two weeks in a ziplock bag.
