My children are obsessed with play dough…they’ll play with it for hours and want me to pull it out of days and days in a row.
So why not ring in the season of fall with two of our favorite things? Play dough and the amazing smell of pumpkin. The children are having fun while filling the house with a sweet aroma!
My Favorite Play Dough Tips:
- You can always double the recipe and make more!
- With more play dough comes with more mess! Pull out a disposable table cloth and cover your table to catch all the small pieces.
- My kids always seem to drop little pieces on the floor, I let them dry up for a few hours and then they are easy to sweep up!
- If you don’t have playdough accessories, use cookie cutters and your kitchen rolling pins!
Pumpkin Play Dough Ingredients:
- 1 cup flour
