Pumpkin Spice Homemade Playdough!

With Fall being right around the corner, we decided to try to make a new kind of playdough Pumpkin spice playdough!

You guys, this playdough smells so good that it’s almost super hard to not want to take a bite! The aroma fills the house as your kids (and you!) play with the dough and it’s heavenly! It makes my little Fall-lover heart happy!

You can even add some fun things to your pumpkin pie playdough, such as pumpkin shaped cookie cutters or even miniature pie pans!


  • 1 cup of Flour
  • 1 cup of Water
  • 1/2 cup Salt
  • 2 tablespoon Vegetable Oil
  • 1 tablespoon Cream of Tartar
  • 1 tablespoon Pumpkin Pie spice (or a combination of nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger)
  • 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • Food Coloring (optional)


  • Place all ingredients in a pot and whisk them together.
  • Heat on med/high until mixture clumps together (happens very quickly)
  • Stir the mixture the entire time to prevent sticking
