During this Autumn Bucket List post, I listed that during Autumn I wanted to make lots of spiced autumnal scented play dough for Luke.

Today we made our first batch with our first spice. The first Autumnal spice I came across in the cupboard was cinnamon. Probably one of my favourite flavours of spice and definitely one of my favourite scents; it conjures up images of cozy blankets, chai tea lattes and frosty mornings. Perfect for Autumn and Winter!

Cinnamon Scented Autumn Playdough by lukeosaurusandme.co.uk

We used our basic play dough recipe, added a good few table spoons of cinnamon and mixed a big dollop of red poster paint in with the boiling water. The result: squishy, soft, wonderfully smelly autumn coloured play dough.

We teamed this Autumn Spiced Play Dough with:

  • Colourful match sticks
  • Various sized and coloured bottle tops
  • Plastic dinosaurs
  • Silicone cupcake cases
  • Letter cookie cutters
