Make Your Own Fall Colored and Scented Play Dough

dough

Ingredients: 

  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 cup of salt
  • 2 cups of water
  • 3 tablespoons of lemon juice (or 1 tablespoon of cream of tartar)
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons of pumpkin pie spice
  • food coloring (or any homemade vegetable/fruit juice)

Recipe:

  • Whisk together all the ingredients in a pan
  • Cook over stove on medium heat
  • Remove when the mix starts to harden
  • Stir until ball starts to form
  • Knead dough
  • Separate into different bowls and add food coloring
  • And voila!
  • Ziplock bags will keep them nice and fresh
  • You can also freeze them

I am very happy with the final result! I suggest using more spices than I did for greater smell but I only had cinnamon and it wasn’t very strong. Sixtine couldn’t care less but I would love to see how yours turned out! Oh, and one last tip, to prevent food coloring from staining your hands, I suggest oiling them a little bit.
