Gift Idea: Gingerbread Play Dough

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.
