Our advent calendar activity yesterday was making holiday playdough. We decided to try making gingerbread playdough. So easy and smells soooo good! :)
We used our standard homemade playdough recipe. Instead of adding food coloring, we stirred some spices into the flour before adding it to the pot. We used ginger, cinnamon, allspice, and cloves. I did not measure any of it — I basically just let the girls shake, shake, shake till they thought they were done. Our flour didn’t look very brown, but once I started cooking the playdough, it looked perfectly gingerbread-y.
Add a few rolling pins and cookie cutters, and the girls were set for a good, long playdough session. I’m thinking some small containers of this dough paired with a cookie cutter would be great Christmas gifts for the girls’ friends.
Have a wonderful weekend!
