My little chef loves it too! He cooks up all kinds of things with his homemade dough! So cute! :)
My friend Helen recently shared with me several different "flavors" of homemade play dough and her Pumpkin Bread Play Dough would be perfect for your tailgate party, or any fall party! It keeps the kids entertained while you enjoy the game!
-1 package pumpkin bread mix
-2 cups flour
- 1 1/2 cups salt
-6 tablespoons oil
-6 teaspoons cream of tartar
-3 cups water
Mix and cook over medium heat, until ball forms. Remove from heat and knead.
Just make sure not to turn the heat on until you have mixed ingredients and placed them inside the pan, so you don't burn it up...it will cook fast!
It smells yummy, filling the room, and even if the kiddos accidentally eat it, at least it is all natural! :)
Don't forget to have some play dough utensils (cookie cutters, rolling pins, play dough scissors, stamps, etc) on hand for the kids to play with!
Helen actually made little containers of it for all the kids in our preschool class (as a fall party favor) and attached the cutest little poem...
"It's not a trick, just a treat! But don't forget, it's not to eat! It's Pumpkin Bread Play Dough, so play away! Happy Fall to you today!"
How cute would it be to send the kids home from your tailgate party with Pumpkin Bread Play Dough favors!
