Easy Pumpkin Spice-Scented Play Dough
Kristen Thompson • Oct. 4, 2017
I know that pumpkin spice has become a cliche of the fall season. Everything seems to be infused with the flavours and scents of cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. And I’ll be honest: I love it. I love pumpkin Baileys, pumpkin pie, and pumpkin muffins. And now I love pumpkin play dough.
This soft, squishy play dough smells and looks just like pumpkin pie. Follow these quick and easy steps and get ready for a blast of fall:
(Note: The following ingredients will yield a large batch of play dough, ideal for splitting into multiple colours. If you want a smaller amount, cut this recipe in half)
- 2 cups flour
- 2 cups water
- 1/2 cup of salt
- 2 tbsp of coconut oil
- 4 tsp. cream of tartar
- Yummy spices: 3 tsp. of allspice, 2 tsp. of cinnamon, 1 tsp. of nutmeg
How to make:
- Combine all ingredients in a large pot, and stir over medium heat until the dough is no longer sticky (should only take a few minutes)
- Remove from heat and place dough in a mixing bowl. When it’s cool enough to touch, divide into portions and mix with food colouring. To make dough that looks like pumpkin pie filling, mix yellow and orange together.
- Time to play!
