Christmas,  Play at home

Christmas Time: Gingerbread playdoh

Put a spin on your traditional playdoh mix and make some gingerbread playdoh! Perfect for little people to pretend baking cookies, this is a great addition to any play kitchens or just get it out on the kitchen bench while you’re cooking and let them join in.

Playdoh Recipe

  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 3tbsp oil (any kind)
  • 2tbsp cream of tartar
  • 1tbsp ground ginger
  • 2tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup boiling water

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. It will be a bit crumbly at first, but you will need to knead the doh with your hands and before you know it you will have a smooth, beautifully scented playdoh! If any of the kids get a bit too keen on it, rest assured this recipe is taste safe and a few licks will be fine!

This recipe can easily be adapted – I didn’t have any ginger but I did have nutmeg, so I switched the two. Work with what you’ve got!!
