It’s officially Fall, and everything is pumpkin spice from candles to your Starbucks drink! We LOVE the smell of pumpkin spice, and found this fun recipe for Pumpkin Pie Play Dough that your kids will love too! Consider it aromatherapy for the whole family!
Pumpkin Pie Play Dough Recipe
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1 cup water
2 tbsp oil
2 tbsp cream of tartar
1/3 of the jar of pumpkin pie spice (the tiny jar)
Combine the dry ingredients and the oil. Slowly add the water. Add a few dashes of each of the extracts and a few drops of red and yellow food coloring. Cook over medium heat, stirring until stiff.
As it mixes you’ll be able to tell if it needs more food coloring. Start with a little at first, and add until the desired shade of orange is achieved.
Once it’s finished cooking, turn out onto wax paper and allow to cool.
You can customize the smell as well. If it smells too spicy for your liking, add more extracts. If the dough is too sticky, add a little more flour. If it’s too dry, add a few drops of water.
