Pumpkin Pie Scented Playdough

This might smell good enough to eat, and you may even need to remind your children NOT to.  🙂

The perfect playdough for this time of year!  Pull out your cookie cutters in the shapes of pumpkins, acorns, leaves, whatever else and make craft time something different and new!

What are some fall crafts and activities you enjoy with your children?

Also see recipe for peppermint playdough for the holidays here.




  1. Our boys always like to do leaf rubbing with crayons.
    They will LOVE this playdough! I just need to go get some cheap white flour! 😉

    • Oh my goodness!!!! That’s funny you said that. I had gone to the store to pick up more food coloring for this project and thought to do just that! I bought a cheap bag of white flour to use for just playdough. I had even thought of mentioning that in my blog post and forgot. Thanks for the reminder!! I didn’t want to use my good, organic, unbleached flour that I use for bread and baking.

  2. We LOVE making playdough! Can’t wait to make THIS playdough! Thanks!

  3. We usually make our playdoh with Koolaid for the fun smell and color, but this one is right up Mom’s alley! Making it today. Thanks!

    • Hey Nicki! The Koolaid playdoh is a great idea! I think we may live near each other….something about the bookfair I saw on your blog…. 😉

      • I’m replying from two years ago. : ) I lost my copy of this recipe and came back for a reprint. And there’s your reply! I live in North Texas (obviously from the Book Fair). Maybe we ARE neighbors?

  4. I popped over from Kristin @ Sweet Country Life. Your play dough looks like just what we need for our busy 3yr old! Thank you for sharing~


  5. Great color on the playdough. Nice twist on the recipe too, thank you!

  6. How fun would this be to do as a center in the classroom? And it would smell SO GOOD too! Pinning this to try this fall… and also sticking around to see all of your other fabulous ideas. I’ve already clicked on your FAITH section and want to thank you so much for being salt and light in our world… Salt, Light, Playdough… I was blessed today by you! Jules

  7. Uhmm do not do what I did and mix the food coloring in last after you make the playdoh *giggles*
