We are at the stage in life where lots of our friends have little kiddos. While I love giving treats to families, it’s fun to be able to give a little one something special of their own.
As long as no gluten or cinnamon allergies are a part of the child’s life, this gingerbread play dough is so festive and fun, it makes the perfect little something.
Plus – you have fun even making it!
Gingerbread Play Dough – Adapted from Mommy Savers
- 4 C all purpose flour
- 1 C salt
- 1 T cinnamon
- 2 tsp. ginger
- 3 T oil
- 2 C boiling water
In a large bowl, mix together the flour, salt, cinnamon and ginger. Stir well.
Then, add in the oil and boiling water.
Begin by stirring with a spatula or wooden spoon until the dough cools off a bit from the boiling water.
Then, knead on a lightly floured surface, adding more oil and/or flour as needed to achieve a non-sticky pliable dough.
Place in a bowl and cover to prevent drying and let the dough cool completely.
Divide into fifths by cutting the dough with a knife. Place each section into an airtight bag or container.
