I love all the Fall scents! Our house has been covered in pumpkin spice air fresheners and candles! So what better than Fall scented playdough?? Making homemade playdough is at lot cheaper than buying it! Plus you can great scents like PUMPKIN SPICE, that you just can't find in any store! This is a great recipe and it is so easy to make! I love Learn Play Imagine, they always have great activities for kids of all ages and this is one of them! To make the playdough, you start off by making a base recipe and then add other ingredients for the color and scent!
Ingredients for the base playdough:
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1 tablespoon cream of tartar
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
3/4 cup boiling water
Ingredients for Fall scents and colors:
Pumpkin Pie Spice
Liquid Watercolors (or Food Coloring): Orange, Green, Red, Yellow and Brown
To make the playdough:
In a mixing bowl, add the flour, salt and cream of tartar and stir.
Add the vegetable oil and stir again.
Next, stir in the according color and spice for the playdough you are making.
Finally, add in the hot water. Stir until the dough has cooled, then you can knead with your hands.
Then, just store you playdough in an air tight container to make it stay soft!
