Don’t you just love the smell of autumn? Cinnamon, pumpkin, nutmeg oh my! We can’t get enough of it. So it seemed like the perfect time to make a batch of scented salt dough and share this amazing and easy recipe with you.
Autumn Scented Salt Dough
1 cup flour
1 cup salt
1 cup hot water (not boiling)
Optional food coloring- we prefer the Wilton food gels. They give great color and you only need a little dab. You can make the colors a lot richer by adding more. I prefer to stay on the natural side for our family.
You can add a Fall Mini Cookie Cutter Set and natural materials like leaves and acorns for added fun.
Easy Directions– Add all of the ingredients into a bowl. (coloring works great if you add it into the water or right after pouring the water before you mix). Mix it up completely until it forms a ball and is not sticky.
* For the amount you see here it is 2 batches (1 for each scent/ball of dough). You could easily make 1 batch, split it and add the spices separately. At our house we like a lot of dough 😉
After playtime you can lay the creations on a cookie sheet and bake on 200 degrees for approximately 3-4 hours (timing depends on thickness and size of dough). The kids also loved making these cranberry play dough ornaments at Christmas time.
Everyone loves this No Cook Natural Cinnamon Play Dough. It is the perfect play dough for the fall! 🙂
Don’t you just love autumn?!
