Pumpkin Spice Play Dough Ingredients
- 1 cup of flour
- 1/2 cup of salt
- 2 tsp. Cream of tartar
- 1 cup of water
- 1 tsp vegetable oil
- 1 Tbsp. pumpkin spice
Pumpkin Spice Play Dough Instructions
Combine flour, salt, cream of tartar, and pumpkin spice.
You could use essential oils in this instead of species if you want a stronger fragrance. Check out my favorite essential oils and find out how to buy them here.
Add the water and oil to your flour mixture.
Heat the flour mixture in a pot over medium heat for 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly. The play dough will start to pull away from the sides and form a dough-like consistency.
Remove your dough from the heat and allow it to cool.
