Playdough Pumpkin Pops

Hey there, Friends!

I’m knee deep in Halloween fun and I’m sure many of you are too! I My two older boys had their Fall Fest last week in lieu of a Halloween Party, but I’m still making treats for them to pass out in their classes…I just can’t resist!  Tomorrow, my little guy has his first pre-school party and I’m whipping up a batch of these fun Playdough Pumpkin Pops for him to hand out to his friends…

Supplies needed:

  • Orange Playdough
  • Googly eyes
  • Paper straws
  • Plastic fold and close sandwich bags or small cellophane bags
  • Curly ribbon

First, you’ll need to whip up a batch of my Favorite Playdough Recipe.  Depending on the size of pumpkins, you may need to make 2-3 batches.  I made 2 batches for a class of 12 pre-schoolers.  The pumpkins were about 2.5 inches in size or about two times the amount of playdough in a small store bought container.  Add orange food coloring if you desire a brighter orange color.

Then shape the playdough into round or square pumpkin shapes.  We LOVE “Spookley the Square Pumpkin” books, so the square pumpkins were a big hit with my boys.  Press a couple googly eyes into the playdough, stick a paper straw in the top of the pumpkin, wrap the pumpkin in a small plastic bag, and tie a curly ribbon around the top.  If you’re concerned the googly eyes will be a choking hazard, glue them to the front or draw a face on the front of the bag with a permanent marker.
