Halloween Play Dough Tray

It has been a while since I have made some play dough, so making a Halloween play dough tray was the perfect excuse for making a fresh batch.  It also meant I could try out my new gel food colourings to see how well they hold up.

Make sure you follow my Halloween board on Pinterest for more ideas.  Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make your own Halloween play dough tray you will need:

  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1 cup of water
  • ¼ cup of salt
  • 2 tbsp of Cream of tartar
  • 1 tbsp of oil
  • Black food colouring
  • Pumpkin spice (optional)
  • Saucepan
  • Tray
  • Pony beads
  • Rolling pin
  • Halloween cookie cutters

To make the play dough, mix all the ingredients together over a low heat until it comes together.  Then turn it out and kneed it to make it smooth.  Be careful as it will be extremely hot.

Add it to a tray with some cookie cutters, beads, rolling pin, or anything thing else you think would be good.

Leave it out as an invitation to play for your little ones.  I left ours there for a week.  At the end of each day, I would put the play dough into a Tupperware box so that it wouldn’t dry out.
