Pumpkin Spice Play Dough

We had a rough weekend. Not a lot of sleep all around for all three of us so we really tried to lay low and do a whole lot of nothing. Maddie of course isn't a big fan of doing nothing so I ended up mixing up a match of play dough to keep her occupied.

I split our usual play dough recipe in half this time and added some gold glitter, pumpkin pie spice and orange food coloring to make some fantastic pumpkin play dough!

Once the dough cooled I set Maddie up with a pie play dough mat, rolling pin, a few cookie cutters and the lids to some yogurt containers that looked like tiny pie plates!

We ended up all joining the fun and making some pumpkin pie creations. Pies, pumpkins and a dinosaur for good measure!

Neat Idea! I bet you it smelled way better than normal play dough :)

We love pumpkin pie play dough. Last night we made apple pie play dough that smelled delicious!
I was wondering where you got that adorable play dough mat? Also, where you printed your file folder games from tot school (the ant sizing one). Thanks so much!
