We love to make our own playdough and when it smells as good as this apple pie playdough, we want to make it all the time! We made it for our preschool group when we were learning about the letter A and were talking about apples. I gave each of the kids some playdough and a little pie tin to pretend to make apple pie. It was great fun!
This recipe is for my favorite playdough recipe and we just added a few extra ingredients to make it smell as good as apple pie!
Apple Pie Playdough
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup water
- 2 tsp. cream of tartar
- 1/3 cup salt
- 1 TBSP oil (I usually use Canola oil, but I’m sure that most oils would be fine)
- Food coloring
- Spices (I used a sprinkle of cinnamon, cloves, and ginger)
(I made two batches. On one I used green food coloring. On the other I sprinkled in the great smelling spices)
Mix all the ingredients in a medium saucepan. Turn on your stove to medium/low heat. Keep stirring until it starts to thicken up. Keep stirring until it is the right consistency and no longer wet. You don’t want it too sticky. Let it cool on wax paper. Then give it to your favorite kiddos to play with!
My youngest son loves playdough and can play with it for a long time. I just give him a little rolling pin and some cookie cutters and he loves it!
Doesn’t the apple pie playdough look so cute?
Have a great day!
