Pumpkin Pie Play Dough

30 10 2008

We found a fun recipe for play dough on the blog Pepper Paints! Although the play dough is not edible, it will have your home smelling like fall and pumpkin pie in no time!


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tarter
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 cup water
  • 6 drops red food coloring
  • 15 drops yellow food coloring


  1. Combine all dry ingredients in a cooking pot.
  2. Add oil, water, and food coloring.
  3. Whisk until smooth.
  4. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture forms a ball.
  5. Place the dough onto the counter and once it has slightly cooled, knead the dough until it is smooth.
  6. The play dough will keep in a plastic bag for about a week. Enjoy!

I really like how “natural” the finished playdough looks. When you use food coloring the color have a tendency to become almost neon like. Thank you!
