Gingerbread Play-Doh

Here is a simple handmade gift for some little people in your life– Gingerbread PlayDoh. It smells SO yummy…

Makes a great stocking stuffer or fun, frugal gift for a boy or girl. Let ’em roll it out and use cookie cutters to make pretend gingerbread cookies or other goodies.

The recipe I used was from It was pretty quick and easy to make. Even though I only made one batch, I’m sure it would be no problem to double if making a bunch at a time.

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 TB cinnamon
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp ground cloves
  • 2 TB vegetable oil
  • 1 cup water

Whisk dry ingredients together in a medium saucepan. Mix in wet ingredients, turn heat on medium, and stir continuously until it reaches a thick consistency. Turn out onto parchment paper and knead by hand. Allow to cool completely and place in an airtight container or ziploc bag.
