In honor of fall we made Pumpkin Pie Playdough today. It smells wonderful, but is NOT edible.
The recipe calls for:
5 1/2 cups flour
2 cups salt
8 teaspoons cream of tartar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 (1 1/2 ounce) container pumpkin pie spice
Orange food coloring (2 parts yellow, 1 part red)
4 cups water
Mix all of the ingredients together. Cook and stir over medium heat until all the lumps disappear. Knead the dough on a floured surface until it is smooth. Store in an airtight container.
I didn't add enough food coloring, so ours is more brown than orange, but it still smelled divine and M loved playing with it.
