Welcome to the first official post in our new series, Make-It Mondays!
Last year, in addition to the typical Halloween candy that we gave out, I wanted to do something else for the littlest ones that came to our house.
Yes, I wanted to be that cool house. You know the one. When I was growing up, it was the woman that owned the local Pepsi plant and gave us half-bottles of Pepsi products. She was the best, and we saved our visit to her house until last because we loved her so much!
I wanted to be the house that the kids said, “Remember Mrs. Doyle? She gave us the neatest ______.”
Well, last year, my creation was homemade Pumpkin Playdoh. And it was a hit with the little peanuts.
I found the recipe on Pinterest here, and I just knew that I had to give this out (as well as candy, of course). It was surprisingly easy to make!
Ingredients for 28 Pumpkin Playdoh Bags
- 4 Cups water
- Orange food coloring (or combine yellow and red)
- 4 Tbsp vegetable oil
- 2 Cup salt
- 8 Tbsp. cream of tartar
- 6 Tsp. pumpkin pie spice
- 4 Cups of white flour
Now I have to figure out what I will be creating for this year. I only have a few days left. Eek! I really want to make some cute treat bags or homemade edible goodies like you see on Pinterest, but because of overly-cautious parents (of which I will totally be starting next year), we need for the food to be pre-packaged. Do you have any suggestions?
