Pumpkin Pie Playdough
Today is Thanksgiving. After a lovely weekend spent with my in-laws [and away from my phone], I am looking forward to a cozy day with my family of five. On today’s agenda is making homemade pizza, taking a nice walk now that the skies have cleared and lastly whipping up a batch of this seasonal pumpkin pie playdough! It smells divine and just like the real deal, however; while non-toxic shouldn’t be eaten. I hope your little ones enjoy it as much as my boys did! They sat still for over an hour which rarely happens!
