31 Days of Savoring: Pumpkin Pie Play-doh
Pumpkin Pie Play-doh
5 1/2 c. flour
2 c. salt
8 tsp cream of tartar
3/4 c. vegetable oil
1 container (1 1/2 oz) pumpkin pie spice
orange food coloring (2 drops yellow/1 drop red)
4 c. water
1. Mix all together.
2. Cook over med heat, stirring, until lumps disappear.
3. Allow to cool slightly.
4. Knead on a lightly floured surface to make soft. (VERY important that it's floured)
Ours didn't turn out quite as orange as I would have liked, but it does have a golden color similar to pumpkin pie. And it smells wonderful. Even now as we play with it, I have to remind myself that it's Play-doh to keep from eating it.
What fall crafts/activities are you doing with your kids?
