Halloween Pumpkin Playdoh

Yes, Halloween has been over for a while, but I was so excited for my homemade non-food treat, that I had to share: Pumpkin Playdoh!


I found the recipe on Pinterest here, and I just knew that I had to give this out (as well as candy, of course). It was surprisingly easy to make!

Ingredients for 28 Pumpkin Playdoh Bags:

-4 Cups water
-Orange food coloring (or combine yellow and red)
-4 Tbsp vegetable oil
-2 Cup salt
-8 Tbsp. cream of tartar
-6 Tsp. pumpkin pie spice
-4 Cups of white flour


Combine the ingredients.


Cook on medium heat for 3-5 minutes.


It will get clumpy! Keep stirring while it cooks.


It looks much more like playdoh!


Put it in a bowl and let cool. At this point, the directions said to knead it for a few minutes, but it was much too warm.


After letting it cool, I put it into balls and put in the bags. I let them breathe so there was no condensation inside the bags.


Still a little condensation, but cool enough to continue on.


Tie and attach the label. We don’t want them eating this, thinking it is a treat!


Only a few left at the end of the night! Success!
