Pumpkin Pie Playdough!
My children and I are going to make this tomorrow!
This can be a fun activity to do with your children for Halloween or Thanksgiving!
Make sure and let you children help you mix all the ingredients together!
As your children are playing with it, talk to them! Ask them how it feels and smells. Roll it into letters and sound out the letter together. Cut it with scissors. Roll pieces into different size balls and talk to them about largest to smallest.
The opportunities are endless.....the most important is to have fun!
Ingredients: 5 1/2 cups flour, 2 cups of salt, 8 teaspoons cream of tarter, 3/4 cup oil, 1 container (1 1/12 oz.) pumpkin pie spice, orange food coloring (2 parts yellow, 1 part red), 4 cups water
Procedure: Mix all of the ingredients together. Cook and stir over medium heat until lumps disappear. Knead the dough on a floured surface until it is smooth. Store in an airtight container.
This is an activity that can stimulate you child's 5 senses!
