Let your kids ‘bake’ alongside you with Homemade Gingerbread Playdough — it looks, smells, and feels just like the real thing!
Today sharing one of my favorite things…homemade playdough! I’ve made it countless times for my girls when they were young, but this time, instead of the multi colors I usually make, this one has a warm, spicy holiday vibe. And speaking of the holidays, this is the time of the year when so many kids need a little something to keep them busy during the seemingly endless wait until the big day. This looks, feels, and smells just like gingerbread dough and it’s positively therapeutic. So even if you don’t have kids or grand-kids, you might want to check it out…
This homemade gingerbread playdough is made with lots of ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and other warm holiday spices so it smells as good as it looks. The dough takes just minutes to make, but if you’ve never made it before you might be surprised to learn that it’s cooked in a saucepan. A little water and oil is added to the dry ingredients and it’s all cooked briefly, just until it comes away from the pan and forms a ball. A few seconds of kneading and it’s ready for play!
