Make Your Own Pumpkin Spice Play-Doh
Earlier this past week, one of the teachers I work with,
Jamie Zarmanian, shared with our preschool classes this fabulous recipe for
pumpkin spice Play-Doh. The entire classroom smelled like cinnamon cookies! The
texture was perfect - soft, but not sticky and children really seemed to enjoy

dough will begin to thicken and form. When it becomes difficult to stir
and is more solid, remove from heat and carefully knead the dough (careful,
