Pumpkin Play Clay Recipe
  • 1 can of pumpkin puree (15 oz)
  • 2-3 cups of corn starch
  • 2 tbsp of pumpkin pie spice
  • Combine the canned pumpkin and the pumpkin spice in a bowl and mix until the pumpkin is smooth.

  • Slowly add corn starch and mix.  Continue to add corn starch and mix until the dough begins to form.  You will then want to remove the dough from the bowl and knead it with your hands.

  • If the dough is at all sticky add a little corn starch & mix it in.  If the dough becomes dry or crumbly that means you added a little too much corn starch.  No biggie- just add a little water and knead it in.
    • After a bit of kneading you will be left with the most delightfully squishy and soft pumpkin play clay!
    • Kids will have a blast playing and creating with this fun dough and the best part- your whole house will be left smelling divine!
