Edible Pumpkin Pie Play Dough is fun for all ages! I recommend this activity for children six-months and older. Since it is edible you don’t have to worry about your baby injesting anything toxic.

Invitation to Play
After I made my Pumpkin Pie Play Dough I stored it in the refrigerator. When I was ready to let my kids play with it I allowed it to thaw in a baggy for a couple hours. I decided to set up the play dough with plastic utensils, popsicle sticks, cinnamon, and Honey Nut Cheerios.
First thing they went for was the cinnamon. I have to admit they ignored the play dough for awhile after while they munched on some Cheerios.
I decided to show them that they could stick the popsicle sticks into the play dough. They seemed to like that.
Pushing Cheerios into the dough added a fine motor component to their play.
They started to get antsy and were saying “all done” so I showed them that they could take their dough and make balls. They weren’t able to do it on their own at 22-months-old so I made the balls for them and they spent a good 15-20 minutes playing with the little dough balls.
My daughter actually tasted one of them. She gave it a little taste and said “Mmm!” while shaking her head up and down.
