Pumpkin Pie Scented Playdough

The scent of this playdough brought even my 9-year-old running! So much for the schoolwork that was supposed to get done while ED was happily playing! I had to change course and do some read-alouds while the kids were occupied.


Here’s how we made it:

1 cup flour

1/3 cup salt

1 1/2  tsp cloves

1 1/2 or 2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1 Tablespoon Cream of Tartar

1 Tablespoon oil

4-5 drops each of yellow and red food dye

1 cup water

5 drops or so of glycerine (optional—I bought mine some time back at the pharmacy—it just makes the playdough a bit smoother)

Cook on the stove on medium until the playdough becomes hard.
