Fall Fun: Cinnamon Pumpkin Spice Play Dough

I am a homemade play dough convert! Ever since I easily whipped up my first batch - it's all I want to use at home.

For our Fall Theme I thought it would be fun to make 
Cinnamon Pumpkin Spice Play Dough.

Can you imagine the aroma in my home while making this? YUM!

I love this super easy recipe:

2 cups flour
1 cup salt
4 tsp cream of tartar
6 tsp pumpkin pie spice
3 tsp cinnamon
2 cups water
2 tbsp. oil
red & yellow food coloring (optional)

What To Do:
1. Combine dry ingredients into saucepan.
2. Add water & oil.
3. Mix well.
4. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently until dough forms.
5. Remove from heat & knead dough.

*Be sure to store in ziplock bag - this lasts  nice long time if stored well.*

The Lil Divas had so much fun playing with this play dough. They used our fall themed cookie cutters.

made some prints of their hands & feet for fun,

and of course used wiggly eyes to create play dough creatures in fall shapes.

 Do you have a favorite play dough recipe or scent? 
Please share!

Happy Play Doughing,

*I am linking up to some of these fun linky parties.*


  1. Simply delicious! And how funny.. my little girl decided to stick her feet in it recently too!!!

    Thanks again for sharing on Kids Get Crafty!


  2. I bet this smells wonderful. I recently made up some kool-aid play dough and some of the scents I have to say I do not like. I've got to try this one though. Thanks for sharing on Monday Madness.

  3. I have never made playdough with a scent, but this one would be so nice. I love the way pumpkin and spices smell. I like using the cookie cutters to create too. Thanks for sharing on monday madness.

  4. Wonderful!!!! We were aiming for something like this last week, only I ran out of red food coloring, so the playdough ended up a yucky yellow. Then I added just a small amount of spice - not enough to make anything smell like anything but playdough. The good thing though, was that it was my first attempt at making playdough at home that was actually usable (my friends find this funny and keep me supplied when they make it) I will not admit defeat and may even attempt this recipie when my yellow, non-smelly playdough hardens =)

  5. I am featuring this on the linky tomorrow! I really can't wait to try it this week.

  6. I think this is going to make us all hungry for sweets, but it sure looks like fun! Will be trying it out soon.

  7. LOVE the dough
    Please come to my parties

  8. Love this! SO cute! I featured you this week!

  9. I love this idea! My kids and I are going to do this today!

  10. How much dough does this recipe make?

    1. Christina,

      It makes a fairly large clump go dough. I use it at a table with 4-6 kids and everyone has a very generous sized portion to play with - much more than the store bought play dough containers.

      If you double the recipe you could easily have enough play dough for 12-15 kids or more. If you need less, for 1-2 kids and don't want to use a lot you could half it.

      Hope that helps.


Thanks for taking the time to visit Mom to 2 Posh Lil Divas! I hope you will stay awhile to explore all we have to offer!
