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.
