Pumpkin Pie Play Dough

This week Nancy discovered the joys of play dough.  I’m very grateful for this discovery as it bought me at least 45 minutes at a stretch of baby bliss in an otherwise trying week.  Unlike her sister, Nancy doesn’t seem to want to eat it non-stop, so I can leave her “alone” with it and do some chores.  Perfect!  When she discovered the play dough, all we had available was the left over play dough from our summer art play dates, which was of course full of grass and mud.  So, needless to say, we needed new play dough.

I ended up making my usual recipe and then after adding some beautiful orange food coloring to it, I decided that it looked just like pumpkin pie filling.  Then I had the brilliant idea to add some of the bulk pumpkin pie spice I had just bought (two or three teaspoons) and it looked and smelled just like pie!  And while playing with it, your hands smell like pie and the air smells like pie.  Its just delicious.  And since nobody at my house eats the play dough now, I can get away with it.
