I handmade all the Christmas gifts for the family this year. My dad LOVES anything pumpkin. So when I found this recipe for Pumpkin Playdoh at Preschool Education I though it was so neat. Since a grown man doesn’t have much of a need for “Playdoh” I renamed it.
Here’s the label I put on the jar.
He said it “Mells good!”
Pumpkin Pie Playdoh
5 1/2 cups flour
2 cups salt
8 teaspoons cream of tartar
3/4 cup oil
1 container (1 1/12 ounces) pumpkin pie spice
orange food coloring (2 parts yellow, 1 part red)
4 cups water
Mix all of the ingredients together. Cook and stir over medium heat until all lumps appear. Knead the dough on a floured surface until smooth.
I halved the recipe and and since I didn’t have pumpkin pie spice and just did a mixture of ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg until it smelled right. It’s smooth and not gritty or sticky. LOVE it.
