Pumpkin Pie Playdough using REAL canned pumpkin!


Pumpkin pie play dough using REAL pumpkin!

-        1 cup of canned pumpkin pie filling or pumpkin purée
  •     1/2 cup of water
  •     2 tablespoons of oil
  •     1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  •     1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  •     1 teaspoon of cloves
  •     1 teaspoon of nutmeg
  •     1/2 teaspoon of ginger
  •    if you don't have the cloves, nutmeg and ginger, you could also sub pumpkin pie spice
  •     orange gel food coloring
  •     2 1/4 cups of plain flour
  •     1/2 cup of salt
  •     2 tablespoons of cream of tartar
    Add first set of ingredients to a large pot and heat on the stove, stirring regularly, until just bubbling.  Remove from heat and add in dry ingredients.  Stir until combined and dump mixture out on the counter.  Allow to cool for 5 or 10 minutes.  Knead dough until soft and fully cooled (it may feel sticky in the beginning, but don't add flour – the stickiness will go away once the dough is cool).  Store in an airtight bag or container in the fridge when not in use.
