halloween-play-doughIf you’re looking for a simple, cute and candy-free-treat to hand out this Halloween, look no further than our DIY Halloween Play Dough Favors!  We used some fabulous products from Oriental Trading Company and some ingredients we already had in the kitchen and were able to create these not-so-spooky favors!  This play dough took only minutes to make and our little ones had a blast helping put these favors together! So, get your supplies and let’s get the spooky fun started!

To begin, here is the recipe we used to make our play dough:

Mix all the ingredients together except for the food coloring.  Once the play dough is the proper consistency, divide into 3 bowls.  Add a few drops of orange food coloring to one bowl and green food coloring to another.  This will make your pumpkin themed play dough and Frankenstein themed play dough!  And the white play dough will be for our ghost!

Here’s a list of supplies you’ll need to make the favor jars:

DIY Halloween Play Dough SuppliesStep 1: Take the Sharpie marker and draw a jack-o-lantern face on one of the DIY Snow Globe Jars.
