Today, we are falling into sensory play with Mess for Less. Together we will be sharing fun Fall sensory activities over the next couple weeks. Vicky is kicking off the series with an amazing pumpkin pie sensory activity, and we made a fun and SILLY pumpkin putty.
Silly Pumpkin Putty Recipe
- 3/4 teaspoons of borax
- 1 1/3 cups very warm water
Combine in small bowl
In a second bowl combine
- 2 cups of white school glue
- 1 1/2 cups very warm water
- a few drops of orange food coloring
- Pumpkin pie spice - added until you have reached the desired scent
Once the ingredients of each bowl are well mixed, combine both bowls
As the ingredients of both bowls are mixed the pumpkin putty will begin to form
Once the ingredients are well enough mixed you will want to remove the slime substance from the bowl and finish working it by hand. This whole process is really fun for the kids
You will have residual watery ingredients left in the bowl. Those are not needed.
This pumpkin putty is so SILLY and smells just like pumpkin pie. You can stretch it and pull it and use it to make fun pretend pumpkin treats. It is a blast for kids and is sure to produce lots of giggles
