Gingerbread playdoh

One of the moments of Mummy genius over the Christmas holidays was to take the 5 mins needed to make some Gingerbread playdoh.  We often make gingerbread and spend hours decorating it over day and day and days.  There was no way that was going to work this year, but I was directed to someone elses blog post about making playdoh that smells just like ginger bread.  Yum. So after making some as a gift to take to friends on Christmas eve, and a sweet girls plea, I mixed some up in 10mins flat, and it is was the best fun of the season.

play doh gets dry really quickly here because it's so dry, but not this stuff.

my pie, it smelt too good to only be a spectator

hours and hours of fun

Here's the recipe, more for me for next year, as I will likely forget where I have stored it, but you may be interested.
  • 1 cup all purpose flour (plain)
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 2 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1 tbsp. ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp. ground cloves (didn't use)  Spice wise just use 2tbsp on what you have
  • 2 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp orange extract {optional}


  1. In a medium saucepan whisk together dry ingredients. Next mix in the water, oil, and orange extract and stir until a thick batter is formed. Cook the mixture over low/medium heat until a thick dough forms. Turn out onto parchment paper and knead until smooth. Makes about 2 cups of dough.
