I have a super fun post for the mamas today- I’m sharing how we made Fall playdough this weekend! We made pumpkin playdough and apple playdough! A little pumpkin pie spice, apple pie spice, and cinnamon made for some really yummy smelling playdough. This recipe is super simple and you will be having fun in no time.

Ok, so here’s what we used to make our playdough-
- 1 1/2 cups flour, plus some extra
- 1/2 cup salt
- 1 tbsp oil
- 1 tbsp cream of tartar
- 2 tbsp of either pumpkin pie or apple pie spice, depending on your desired scent
- 1 tbsp cinnamon
- 1 cup water
- Red and yellow food coloring (just red for apple playdough!)
To start, heat a large pot on medium low, and dump all of your dry ingredients in, minus 1/2 cup of the flour. Next add your food coloring to the 1 cup water- I used about 15 drops of red for the apple dough and I used 10 drops of red and 5 or 6 drops of yellow for the pumpkin. Then, add all the wet ingredients to the pot and stir. Stir for a few minutes to mix well, then add in the final 1/2 cup of flour. Within just a minute or two your dough should start to form. Once it becomes hard to stir, dump your dough onto a plate or cutting board to cool.
Once your dough cools slightly, flour your hands and add some extra flour into the dough. Knead your dough until the consistency is right and it is no longer sticky. Your dough is ready to enjoy!
Next, I have some super cute Fall playdough mats for your to print and laminate for your little ones, too.
