Pumpkin Pie Spice Clay
The next time you are fall baking and only need a partial can of pumpkin puree I have a great clay recipe for you to use up what is left. This clay is not only beautiful but it has a wonderful silky texture AND it smells amazing. Seriously delicious aroma here, but please refrain from eating it..,I mean its safe but it tastes kinda gross. So it is also made from all kitchen ingredients so it is safe-no artificial colors, no dyes, preservatives, and its Gluten Free! Finally your child get a wonderful sensory experience; seeing, smelling, touching – through rolling, kneading, shaping, squeezing, etc…. You probably have all these ingredients on hand so what are you waiting for? Go make some yummy fun for you and your child!
½ cup Pumpkin puree
1 cup cornstarch
1 Tbsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice
1 tsp. Cinnamon
1 tsp. Vanilla
Place all ingredients in a large bowl and stir to combine.
Place dough on a smooth surface sprinkled with additional cornstarch.
Knead dough until smooth, it should be silky and not sticky, if needed mix in additional cornstarch.
Provide your child with a roller, plastic knife, small pie tins, muffin tin, cookie cutters, and other items for fun free play.
This clay will last 3-4 days if kept in the refrigerator between play times, I store it in a ziplock with a slightly damp paper towel wrapped around it.
If it starts to dry out, just sprinkle with water and knead it into dough.
