It only takes 6 ingredients and 5 minutes to make some homemade pumpkin spice playdough. Perfect for little ones, and it’s great for easy toxin free fun!


Units Scale

1 cup flour

1/2 cup salt

2 Tbsp cream of tartar

1 Tbsp pumpkin pie spice

1 Tbsp oil

1 cup water

Food coloring or 1 Tbsp turmeric (optional)

Essential Oil (optional, but makes it smell nice!)


In a saucepan, mix together all the ingredients (except the essential oil) over medium/low heat. Add a few drops of food coloring or the turmeric to make the playdough a fun color!

Keep mixing until the mixture forms a ball and comes away clean from the sides of the pan.

Remove from the pan and place it on some parchment paper. Knead for a minute or so. If you’re adding essential oil, knead it in at this point.

Let it cool, then have fun playing!

Store in an airtight container (I use a ziploc baggie).
