Hours of fall fun for little hands. Plus, it’s easy as pie – pumpkin pie, that is!
Pumpkin Pie Play Dough
given to me years ago by my friend Karen
makes a ton – easily halved
- 5 1/2 cups flour
- 2 cups salt
- 8 teaspoons cream of tartar
- 1 1/2 ounces pumpkin pie spice (whole container)
- 3/4 cup oil
- red and yellow food coloring to make orange
- 4 cups water
Mix all ingredients together. Cook and stir over medium heat until lumps disappear and it begins to pull away from the pan. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth. Let it cool, and then it’s play dough time!
For added fun, we like to use Halloween and fall-themed cookie cutters, garlic presses, and mini rolling pins. Store in an airtight container or place in treat bags to give out on Halloween instead of candy.
