In our household, we are definitely excited for the fall season. For me, fall means all sorts of delicious, thematic recipes. For the kids, it means Halloween is fast approaching.
There’s just something so amazing about fall scents. Every time the season rolls around, I enjoy whiffs of cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin in my kitchen. I figure: why not do the same for my kids’ playdough?
This is why I recently whipped up cinnamon playdough!

No-Cook Cinnamon Playdough Tips
Keeping an Eye on the Playdough’s Texture
Making this cinnamon playdough is very easy. All it takes is adding all of the ingredients in a large bowl and mixing until everything is well-incorporated.
The most important thing to watch out for when whipping-up this homemade recipe is the playdough’s consistency. If you feel like it is too moist, you can add a bit more flour, one tablespoon at a time.
If it is too dry, you may add water one tablespoon at a time.
Be Sure to Use Table Salt
Salt is one of the ingredients to make this no-cook cinnamon playdough. We highly encourage you to use table salt. If you use sea salt, it will not incorporate properly with the rest of the ingredients and will make the playdough too rough.
No Cooking Required
What’s great about my cinnamon playdough recipe is that there is no cooking required! A lot of homemade playdough recipes require a stovetop step, but mine is so easy that it is made in minutes – stovetop-free!
Is Your Cinnamon Playdough Recipe Edible?
All of the ingredients in my cinnamon playdough are safe for ingestion. However, I would still discourage your kiddos from eating it.
One of the reasons is because it wouldn’t taste very good. Another reason is so that they do not get in the habit of putting playdough in their mouth.
No-Cook Cinnamon Playdough Recipe
- Begin by adding flour, salt and ground cinnamon in a large bowl. Mix together.
- Next, add the wet ingredients: water and vegetable oil. Mix with a wooden spoon until ingredients start to combine.
- To really get the ingredients well-incorporated, knead the playdough with your hands until you achieve the perfect playdough consistency. If the playdough is too runny, add flour, one tablespoon at a time. If it is too dry, add water one tablespoon at a time.
