Scented Apple Pie Playdough

Author Stefanie Fauquet


  • 1 cup flour
  • ¼ cup salt
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup water
  • ½ tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon red food coloring


  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, add the flour, salt, cream of tartar, nutmeg and cinnamon. Stir until incorporated.
  2. Add water, olive oil, red food coloring and stir continually until mixture thickens and begins to form a ball.
  3. Remove from the heat and allow to cool for 10 minutes.
  4. Place the cooled play dough on a non-stick surface and knead until the color is consistent throughout the dough and the texture is smooth.
  5. Optional: find thin sticks and leaves from outside and place them in the ball of dough to make them look like real apples with stems and leaves.
