DIY Pumpkin Playdough

I love to use items I already have in my pantry to make something the kids can play with and that will be a great sensory activity. It is Fall and we love the smell of pumpkin. I tried a few recipes and this recipe worked best to make a pumpkin play dough.

Best thing is you only need 4 pantry items to make it and there is no cooking involved. Your toddler can help mix it up and I love when my daughter gets to be part of the DIY process from beginning to end. However, it is a recipe that is good for one day of playing fun. The play dough does not store well in a Ziploc container wrapped in parchment paper. Just one day later it was not good anymore. But, the initial one day of play was amazing and smelled amazing.

Total Eclipse of the Rainbow- Rainbow Rock Band

One of the brightest stars to come out of the DC metro area kids’ music scene is Parents’ Choice Award-winning Rainbow Rock Band, which performs more than 120 live shows each year. Kids and families around the country await the appearance of the band’s second album, Total Eclipse of the Rainbow which comes out, today!


My youngest daughter loves everything about this album because the songs include some of her favorite things which are rainbows, colors, cake, animals, sunflowers, birthday celebrations and lets not forget fairies. Take a journey with the Rainbow Rock Band with this wonderful children’s album full of storytelling and imagery. We loved it and highly recommend giving it a listen. (once, twice or if you are in my household we listened to the cd for at least half of the day, today).
