  • Ingredients
  • 1 Cup Flour
  • 1 Cup Water
  • 2 Tsp Cream of Tartar
  • 2 Tsp Canola Oil
  • 1/3 Cup Salt
  • 2 Tsp Pumpkin Spice seasoning
  • Food Dye
  • Small sealable containers from the dollar store. Anything could work. I just like these.


  1. Mix together all ingredients in a pot. You will not want to add your food dye until your ingredients are well mixed.
  2. Once your ingredients are well mixed, add your food coloring and stir well. If you are using food coloring drops, the above color was achieved by 20 yellow drops and 20 red drops.
  3. After you add your food coloring put the pot on the oven at medium heat. Stir consistently until your dough stiffens up. This shouldn't take more than 2-5 minutes.
  4. Your completed playdough would look like the picture above. Set it aside.
  5. For the black playdough you will do 20 drops each of red, blue, and green.
  6. For the white playdough, you will not add any food coloring.

Recipe Notes

Playdough needs to be in a sealed container when not being used. This playdough is non-toxic and safe if kids decide to eat it though it probably wouldn't taste great.
