Pumpkin Pie {Play Dough}

With Thanksgiving just over a week away, Pumpkin Pie is all I can think about. Well, not ALL. But it is on my mind, along with pecan pie and turkey and my Grandma’s chicken & homemade noodles and my Aunt’s cheesy vegetable bake…..

Sorry…easily side-tracked….. back to Pumpkin Pie.

To get my two little kids in the spirit of Thanksgiving and to give Lincoln something to do other than throwing Thomas and the other trains off the train table at his little sister, we made Pumpkin Pie Play Dough.

What You Need:

  • 2- 1/2 cups Flour
  • 1/2 cup Salt
  • 3 tbsp. Oil
  • 1 tbsp. Alum
  • 2 tbsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 2 cups Boiling water
  • Optional: Food Coloring (I used red & yellow because I couldn’t find orange)

Step One: Pour flour, salt, alum, and pumpkin pie spice in a mixing bowl and stir.

Step Two: Add oil and stir.

Step Three: Adults – Pour the boiling water in and stir. (needs to be boiling, not just hot)

Step Four: Put play dough on cutting board (or directly on the table, if your cutting board is in the running dishwasher at this very moment…lol) and knead the dough until smooth.

Optional step:  Add food coloring, if desired. (I added 10 drops each of red and yellow) Knead into play dough.

Step Five: Allow play dough to cool. About 30 minutes.

Step Six: Play and enjoy!!

When done playing… store play dough in a ziplock bag or Tupperware container in the refrigerator. Lasts several weeks.
