Pumpkin Spice Playdough

My daughter came home from preschool with Pumpkin Spice Playdough. I thought it was a great idea for this time of year. I made some and it made the house smell so good.


Here's how to make your own: (Recipe is at the bottom of the post.)

Add all ingredients to a saucepan.  

Mix together. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly.
 

 It will start to clump together. Keep stirring.



 Once it forms a ball I cook it a minute or two longer and then it's done.


Let cool for a minute then knead it.
Store in an airtight container or bag.


Every once in a while I'll make a batch that's a little sticky. Just pour a teaspoon or two of oil onto your counter top then knead it into the dough. Problem solved.



The recipe is actually pretty much the same as the playdough recipe I already had. I'll share both. 

Pumpkin Spice Playdough
1 c. flour
1/2 c. salt
2 t. cream of tartar
2 T. cinnamon
1 T. cloves
1 T. nutmeg
1 t. ginger
1 c. water
2 T. vegetable oil

Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture forms a ball. Remove from heat and knead dough.

Regular Playdough
1 c. flour
1/2 c. salt
2 t. cream of tartar
2 T. vegetable oil
a few drops of food coloring
Cook the same as above.

  2. Wow! That's a fabulous idea! I bet it smells so good when they play with it. I'd be afraid my son {or myself} would try to eat it though. ;) Thanks for linking at OAM!
