Pumpkin Spice Playdough – This full craft and pictures will hopefully be up today. Many of you may have noticed my absence over the Summer (post move), and it’s due to some medical issues – very thankful for improved medical care in our new State! I felt good early in the day and have the craft ready to go, but then not so great, so it’s time to rest. I did share the full ingredients and instructions though, if you’d like to get a jump start on trying this 🙂 Be sure to check back for the pictures!

Pumpkin Spice Play Dough
Prep Time: 5 minutes | Cook Time: 5 minutes | Total Time: 10 minutes
1 cup flour
¼ cup salt
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup water
Orange food coloring
In a small saucepan over medium heat, add the flour, salt, cream of tartar and pumpkin pie spice. Stir until incorporated.
Add the olive oil, water and food coloring and stir continually until mixture thickens and begins to pull away from the sides of the pan and starts to form a ball.
Remove from the heat and allow to cool for 10 minutes.
Place the cooled play dough on a non-stick surface and knead until the color is consistent throughout the dough and the texture is smooth.
To create pumpkins, divide dough into even sized balls. Flatten slightly and use your thumb to press down on the top center.
Use the side of a popsicle stick to gently press down the sides of the ball to create the grooves similar to a pumpkin.
Break off a small piece of a stick and press in the top center of the pumpkin to create the stem.
Add leaves and vines with the stem to complete the play dough pumpkins.
Note: Store in an airtight container to prevent drying. If the play dough starts to dry out, add a little olive oil and knead.
