Happy Halloween! Pumkin Pie Playdough Recipe & Free Printable Party Favor Tags



Happiest Halloween!
Here are the party favors I have made for my little pumpkin's party.
I made free printable gift tags for you to use with the playdough if you want to do the same.
One set says, "Happy Halloween" for trick-or-treaters or a Halloween Party. The other says, "Thanks for coming to play at our pumpkin's party!"  I love puns.  They make me feel like the pumpkin in the middle.  :o)

Pumpkin Pie Playdough Recipe:
Makes twelve 1/2c. balls

Ingredients:
4c. Water
1/4c. Oil
1 tsp. Vanilla
Orange Food Coloring or Wilton's Icing Color's Orange (my favorite stuff)  *use a lot of color to make it vivid.
2c. Salt
4c. Flour 
1/4c. Cream of Tarter 
(Buy it from a wholesaler or you will pay too much.  I bought mine from the Dekalb Farmer's market and a dollar's worth  makes 2-3 batches.)
3T. Pumpkin Pie Spice
(Or substitute 1T & 2tsp. Ground Cinnamon, 1tsp Grated Nutmeg, 1tsp Ground Allspice, 1tsp Ground Cloves,  & 1tsp Ground Ginger)

In a 5qt or large pot over medium heat combine:
4c. Water
1/4c. Oil
1 tsp. Vanilla
Orange Food Grade Dye
Stir in until dissolved:
2c. Salt
While salt is dissolving, in a bowl combine:
4c. Flour 
1/4c. Cream of Tarter 
3T. Pumpkin Pie Spice
When the salt is disolved, reduce the heat to low and briskly stir in the flour.  The Playdough should form almost immediately.  When all the flour is incorporated remove from the heat and place on a plate to cool.  You can knead in extra color if desired.  

Once it has cooled, take out1/2c. portions with a measuring cup and roll it into a ball.
Place in a plastic bag and put a chenille stem on the bag and curl it around your finger.
Cut out your tag and hot glue it to the stem.
Use a Sharpie to draw on a Jack-o-Lantern face.

And here are the printable tags.  Right click on the one you want and double click "Open image in new tab," then print.  It's 8.5"x11."
