The start of fall is perfect for all kinds of fun apple activities for kids.
With the leaves beginning to change, we just couldn’t resist making a batch of this super soft apple scented playdough, perfect for the start of fall.
When we first made Bubble Dough, it was such a hit that my daughter asked to make that super soft homemade play dough again.
This apple playdough is perfect for an apple unit in preschool or kindergarten. It would also be fun to make as an after school activity with your kids at home.

Apple Scented Playdough
To make your no cook apple playdough, begin by measuring 1 cup of corn starch and dumping it in your bowl. This is the perfect time to work on measuring skills with your child!
Add 1/2 cup of your apple scented shampoo and stir. You can also add in 3-4 drops of green food coloring if desired.
For a bit of added fun, you can add some “apple seeds,” stems, and apple tree leaves to your child’s play.
For our “apple seeds” we used watermelon seeds that I had I saved for crafting. It would take a lot of apples to get that many seeds!
Bubble dough is a very soft play dough, and when mixed together it will hold its shape for a bit before slowly “melting.”
Your child will have lots of fun playing with their fall scented playdough and watching their creations slowly melt down.
Apple is one of my favorite fall-inspired scents! I think we may need to make this apple scented playdough again before the end of fall.
