Pumpkin Spice Playdough {Recipe for Fun}

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy here.

While it may not be the most attractive looking of all playdoughs, this recipe is guaranteed to have your house smelling absolutely yummy in no time at all! We pulled out our pumpkin cookie cutters and the kids had a great time playing with this soft and pumpkin~spiced playdough.

You'll Need:

~ 2 cups of flours {I had whole wheat on hand}
~ 1 cup salt
~ 4 tsp. cream of tartar
~ 1/4 cup cinnamon
~ 2 Tbsp. cloves
~ 2 Tbsp. nutmeg
~ 2 tsp. ginger
~ 2 cups water
~ 2 Tbsp. oil

To Make:

1. Mix the flour, salt, cream of tartar, and spices together in a mixing bowl.

2. Add the water and oil to the dry ingredients and mix together well.

3. Transfer mixture to a medium sized saucepan and heat over medium heat, stirring constantly.

4. The dough will begin to thicken and form. When it becomes difficult to stir and is more solid, remove from heat and carefully knead the dough. {Note: dough will be hot!}

5. When dough has cooled, have fun playing. Store in the fridge to help the dough last longer ~ this is great for the holidays!!


  1. I love it! Thanks for sharing the recipe. My youngest 2 will enjoy this one!

  2. I'm sure it smells nice, but how does it taste? ;-D

  3. Fun! We are gonna give it a try :))

  4. Can't wait to try this! I may even make it as a little party favor for my son's preschool class Fall Party.

  5. We made this in my 4 year old preschool class and it was so fun! Love the amazing aroma!

  6. Thank you! I was looking for a good playdough recipe:)

  7. great idea! We'll have to try this. did anyone try to eat it? I'm sure my Zach will. :)

  8. Thanks for sharing. We will be making this today. come closer to Christmas we always make Gingerbread Playdough:)

  9. Can't wait to try this - thanks for the share!

  10. We're going to make this today - what fun! We've made lemon- and peppermint- and vanilla- and almond- scented play-dough by adding extracts to our home-made dough, but I never thought of using spices for a fall-holiday scent.

  11. Hello from your newest follower! Found you through your post on the Homeschool Village today. I can't wait to make this---my nose needs a reminder of the holidays in this heat!

  12. Totally whipping this up! This might even be great for our holiday gifts; we make our own play dough, shape it, then bake to harden. After that we paint it, clear coat it, and give beautiful ornaments as gifts. Maybe this year we can add scented ones!

  13. Just made some in a jiffy!! Smells great! We can't wait to play with it! :)Thanks for the great directions.
