We Play: Pumpkin Spice Playdough


I finally got to making up a new batch of playdough for E last week.  We had been using the crumbs leftover from E's birthday party, um, 10 months ago.  Pathetic?  Yes.  And it was just the storebought stuff.  I made up a batch using my favorite playdough recipe, colored it orange, and added a little pumpkin pie spice.  Mmmmmm!  This stuff smells amazing!  I set out the playdough in a plastic container, along with a couple of pumpkin cookie cutters.  The first day I put it out, E played with it for an hour straight!  Ahhh, the peace of a child playing contentedly!  :)

Mmmm, wish I could smell that from here, sounds lovely :-) Will have to see if I can find some of that spice at our supermarket for our next batch of playdough!

I really, really have to make some scented playdough, instead of just reading about it all the time! LOL

I'll have to try that recipe. I'm terrible at making playdough for some reason????

I have never tried pumpkin pie spice, I wonder if I would find it on this side of the world? We love making playdough. In fact last night we should have been starting to cook dinner but decided to cook a nice deep purple batch of playdough first!

Pumpkin pie spice is just a mixture of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice. All the stuff you would put into your holiday pumpkin pie! :) Hope that helps!
