Pumpkin Pie Play Dough

Pumpkin pie play dough smells so good, everyone in my family has tried to take a bite of it! The play dough doesn’t taste good at all, so little toddlers and my preschooler continued to happily play with it following the unsuccessful chewing attempt.

Pumpkin pie spice is available in every store, but if you don’t have any, try substituting with the mixture of ground nutmeg, cloves and cinnamon, until your homemade play dough reaches the desired smell. Store your play dough in an airtight container in the refrigerator and it can last for a month!

Pumpkin Pie Play Dough


1 cup flour

2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

1/4 cup salt

2 tbsp. cream of tartar

2 tbsp.oil

1 cup water

orange food coloring


Mix all ingredients, except for water and the food coloring in a medium pot. Gradually add water and mix again. Set the pot on a medium heat and cook, while mixing for 3-5 minutes. When the dough forms a ball in the middle of the pot, it’s ready. Take it out of the pot and cool. Add food coloring, knead and get ready to play!

    I found this recipe very oily when I made it- when I look at your best play dough recipe you only use 1 tblsp of oil per cup of flour. I did make it with a mixture of rice flour and cornstarch so it would be gluten free. I never needed to cut the oil back before- other than that it is wonderful- it makes your hands smell wonderful.
