Found this recipe for a great smelling play dough on the site Ebb and Flow, and it’s a goodie.
2 cups water
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 cups flour
1 cup salt
2 tablespoons cream of tartar
2 tablespoons pumpkin pie spice
Gell food coloring
Mix the water and vegetable oil in a medium saucepan over low heat.
Add the flour, salt, cream of tartar and pumpkin pie spice.
Stir vigorously until it comes together — you’re going to have to put your back into it.
Then separate the dough into as many colors as you want to make.
Knead the gel color into the dough until it’s the right color for you.
Make this dough first thing on Thanksgiving morning, before starting the cooking. This means the girls can have something to knead, pound and stir while I knead, pound and stir.
If you can spare the oven time, bake the shapes in the oven at 250° for 1 hour.
