I have had many requests to post the Pumpkin Playdoh recipe, so here it is! Enjoy it with your little one(s), as that is always my intention. This is a great lesson in coloring blending and science! I love sharing ideas. Happy harvest to you and your family!
Combine in a large pot and whisk until combined:
1 cup flour
1/4 cup salt
1 t cream of tartar
Add and whisk until smooth:
1 cup water
1 T oil (any kind will do)
10 drops red food coloring
10 drops yellow food coloring (add more food coloring until desired shade of orange is achieved)
A bunch of pumpkin spice
Cook over low to medium heat until set; stirring constantly. Remove from heat and knead when it is cool. PLAY! RIp some grass out of the ground, go on a nature hike to find colorful leaves, acorns, walnuts, rocks, sticks and pine cones. All of these things can be used for creative play with the playdoh. Store in a bag or air tight container. Enjoy and SHARE!
