Pumpkin Spice Play Dough!!

It’s that time of year again! 1st week of fall! Pumpkin spice is going to be everywhere! Pumpkin spice bread! Pumpkin pie! Pumpkin spice lattes! And generally just pumpkins everywhere! Today we’re making pumpkin spice play dough! Whats the weirdest thing you’ve seen that has pumpkin spice? Hey guys!! Ray Pajar From Get Crafty Crafty!! And today we’re going to be doing another play dough project! I showed you guys last time how to make an edible play dough out of Jell-o! Today we’re going to be using one made with marshmallow fluff!! And compared to our last play dough project this is actually going to be a little more sweet and less salty but it does go bad a little sooner just because it just completely made out of sugar! Hopefully you guys are going to be able to make this fun project! If you guys want to see some of our other goo projects make sure you checkout the playlist. I’ll have that either in the description or somewhere up here when I put up the annotation. Other than that Lets go ahead and get started with todays project! The items that you’ll need for today project include; a large mixing bowl, a 7 ounce container of marshmallow fluff, about 5 cups of powdered sugar, a small spatula, red and yellow food coloring but if you have orange you can go ahead and use that, and as an optional step you can add some pumpkin spice to make this pumpkin spice play dough. In your large mixing bowl you want to carefully scoop out all of the marshmallow fluff. It’s going to get a little sticky so get ready for all that marshmallow stickiness! Once you’ve emptied out all of your marshmallow fluff into your bowl you’re going to carefully going to add your food coloring into your marshmallow mix. I usually start off by adding a little bit of yellow, and then a small amount of red to get that nice orangey pumpkin color. To get that nice orange you want to use more yellow than you do red. If you have food gels this would actually be a great project to get that intense color but if not slowly add your food coloring a few drops at a time so that you have a better control of the color that your play dough turns out. Once you’ve gotten the right shade of orange for your play dough you’re going to slowly incorporate your powdered sugar once cup at a time into your mix. Depending on the texture that you’re going for you’re going to use about 5 to 6 cups of powdered sugar! When you first start incorporating your powdered sugar into your marshmallow fluff it’s going to feel like it’s not really mixing in. It’s going to take some time eventually all the ingredients will mix together. By the time you’ve added you’re 3rd or 4th cup of powdered sugar, you’ll notice your dough start to form! At this time you can take your pumpkin spice and add a small amount to give it that pumpkin spice smell and taste! Like most of our play dough projects You’ll notice after a certain point you cant really mix any of your ingredients in together with your spatula. So this is the part where you use your hands and you’re going to get a little messy and you’re going to start incorporating your ingredients and kneading them all together. After mixing your dough, on a clean surface, feel free to take it out and start kneading it and start playing with it like you would regular play dough! If it gets too sticky just add a little bit more powdered sugar and depending on what kind of food coloring you use you might need to add more than the recommended 5 to 6 cups. If you love pumpkin spice or you’re just looking for a fun fall project this is a great project to make around this time of the year! Compared to our last play dough, this is definitely a whole lot more edible just because it’s sugar and marshmallow fluff! But with the amount of sugar that you do put in here you want to be careful, since that a lot of sugar and you don’t want to get a sugar rush with the amount of play dough you end up eating! As you guys can see it does get a little sticky after a while because there is sugar. All you have to do is just add a little more powdered sugar around, and then knead it into your dough, and then keep playing with it! If you guys make this project make sure you share it with me either on my Facebook, Instagram or Twitter using the #GetCraftyCrafty hashtag! Other than that Check out some of our other fall projects and hopefully you guys enjoyed making this pumpkin spice play dough! I’ll see you guys next time take care and stay crafty!!
