My kids are out of school for Thanksgiving Break right now AND my hubby is out of town on business. So what am I going to do to keep my kids busy, happy, and NOT fighting? Crafts, of course. And hopefully lots of them!
Today we are using my favorite play-dough recipe - with a Thanksgiving twist!
Pumpkin Pie Play-Dough!
You will need:
1 cup of cold water
1 cup of salt
2 teaspoons of vegetable oil
food coloring (we used red and yellow)
3 cups of flour
2 tablespoons of cornstarch
2 tablespoons (or so) of pumpkin pie spice
*This picture reveals a lot about me - mostly that I'm cheap! lol
Now gather your crew to help you.
Cute, right? Cute help is a must for this project!
Oh, and look at my helpful little Monkey-Man in his apron!
Mix water, salt, oil & food coloring.
Gradually add flour, cornstarch and pumpkin pie spice until the mixture reaches the desired consistency - like bread dough.
* When adding the last cup of flour, it was just TOO hard to stir.
But it's fun to get your hands dirty, anyway!
Now just have fun!
*See our Thanksgiving Tree from last week? And the printables I got at Craftily Ever After.
Store covered or in a zip-top bag.
While I've been uploading pics and working on this blog post, my boys have been very happily playing with their play-dough at the table. They almost NEVER sit for this long doing anything. Ahhhh, this is nice!
