Halloween Party Favors: Pumpkin Play Dough Recipe and Treat

I love making crafts from baby jars.  The unfortunate thing is I dont’ have babies who eat from them so I have to collect them from friends or buy some baby food.  My boys don’t  mind eating pureed fruit, they actually look forward to it. Well, I must admit I like the baby food fruit jars myself. 

Aren’t these Halloween party favors just darling? I must warn you the play dough does smell like Pumpkin pie and you will be tempted to bake something pumpkin after making this!
