Pumpkin Pie Play Dough

I love this playdough, it keeps my kids busy for hours (really!) and makes my house smell like pumpkin pie . You can not beat that.

The kids have been busy making cakes for each other with this playdough.

Pumpkin Pie Play Dough
5 1/2 cups flour
2 cup salt
8 teaspoon cream of tartar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 oz pumpkin pie spice (or your own combination of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and mace)
4 cups water
Food coloring (2 parts yellow, 1 part red)
Mix in a saucepan and heat over medium heat until all lumps disappear. As soon as it cools enough to handle, knead on a flour surface until smooth.
Store in air tight container.

This play dough is not edible, just for playing !!!!!

Do you know if whole wheat flour will work for this? It's all I have at the moment.

Thanks for the recipe, I love playdough that smells nice, much better than plastic.

How much does this recipe make it seems like a lot?
