Autumn Play Dough

YC has been asking for a new batch of play dough for a while now, so this week was the perfect opportunity to make some Autumn play dough ones.

Don’t forget to follow our sensory play board on Pinterest for more ideas, and don’t forget to pin the Pin at the bottom.

You will need:

  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1 cup of water
  • ¼ cup of salt
  • 2 tbsp of cream of tartar
  • 1 tbsp of vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp of spice*
  • Food colouring or powdered paint

* I made three batches of play dough and used cinnamon, pumpkin spice and ginger as my spices

Combine all the ingredients into a saucepan and mix together over a low heat. Once it all comes together so that it all comes out as one big lump, take it out and start to kneed it. Do be careful as it will be hot.

You can use food colouring, but I always find that you get a better result using tempera powdered paint. If you use the paint then add about 1 tbsp of it.

YC and EC were both very excited to new play dough that smelled so nice. They spent a whole afternoon playing with it and making leaf shaped cookies, pizzas and ice cream. Unfortuately I didn’t get any pictures of them playing with it.
