Sensory Spice Playdough Recipe for Kids
Making homemade playdough is a favorite project for toddlers and preschoolers. They love the mixing, the texture, and, of course, all the play; and it's an easy project to do with items right from your pantry. But you can make this project even more scent-sational by adding in some pumpkin pie seasonings, to give your dough an extra sensory kick that little ones will love.
Even big kids
We make our dough in a stand mixer, but even if you mix it by hand it should only take about 5 minutes. Stored in an airtight container, this dough can last up to six months.
Materials for sensory dough
2 Cups Flour
2 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
1/2 Cups Salt
2 Tablespoons Cream of Tartar
1.5 Cups Boiling Water
Food Coloring (optional)
Pumpkin Pie Seasoning (to scent)
1. Mix the flour, salt, cream of tartar, pumpkin pie spice, and oil in a mixing bowl.
2. Pour the boiling water into the dry ingredients and stir continuously until it becomes a combined dough.
4. Allow to cool down, and knead it for a couple of minutes until all the stickiness is gone.
If you don't have a premixed pumpkin spice mix, combine any of the following ingredients to create the same, or even a custom, spice mix: ground nutmeg, ground cloves, ground allspice, ground cinnamon.
