Combine all your dry ingredients and the vegetable oil in a medium size bowl.
Mix together with a spoon.
Now add the mixture to a medium sized saucepan.
Slowly add the tap water.
Add a few dashes of each of the extracts and a few drops of red and yellow food coloring.
Mix well while cooking the playdough mixture over medium heat, stirring until stiff. This is where you can add more food coloring, to get the color you want. Less red, more yellow to achieve orange.
Once it's finished cooking and is stiff like playdough, drop it on a sheet of wax paper you lay out on the counter.
Allow the pumpkin playdough to cool completely before you play with it. If the dough is too sticky, you can add more flour. If the dough is too dry, add a few drops of water.
Then enjoy for the next few days as you mold it with your hands and create fun shapes!
EXTRA TIP! Be sure to store your pumpkin scented playdough in an airtight container for future play. Please also be mindful that this play dough recipe is NOT edible and children should ALWAYS be supervised while playing with their creation!
