Gingerbread Playdough

Today, I am sharing a recipe for gingerbread playdough.  Both of my kids had a blast pretending to bake cookies for Mom and they couldn’t get over the yummy smell!

Gingerbread Playdough


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup salt
  • 2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp ground cloves

Mix all ingredients in a sauce pan.  I mixed the dry ingredients first and then added the wet ingredients.

Stir until your mixture resembles cake batter.

Then cook slowly over medium heat, stirring constantly.  Once the mixture forms one large clump remove the dough from the heat.  Let cool and finish kneading with your hands.
