Pumpkin Pie Playdough

This will be the last Thanksgiving craft before I have to dive into my kitchen and get to work. If you do only one, this is the one to do. I don't think anyone can resist playing with this yummy smelling pumpkin pie playdough. On Thanksgiving day you can put this festive dough out for the children along with some mini pie tins and fun kitchen tools. I promise you will get a lot more cooking done this way. We made a batch to bring to our school Thanksgiving celebration. I put the dough in mini pie tins, wrapped in a cello bag and printed out recipe cards to tie to each bag.

Pumpkin Pie Playdough
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
2 tsp cream of tartar
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tbs vegetable oil
1 cup water
orange food color (or 2 parts yellow, 1 part red)

Add all ingredients to a pot. Add food color until you get the desired color. Cook and stir constantly over medium heat until a large ball forms. Knead on a floured surface until smooth. Let cool and pass on to the kids to enjoy!

We are thankful for art and pumpkin spice today! Happy Thanksgiving!!
