How to make Gingerbread Playdough

Gingerbread Playdough

Ingredients
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 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
  • 2 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp orange extract {optional}
Instructions
  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.

Never under estimate the power of play-dough.
This morning I finally tossed out our pumpkin spice play-dough  and you know, it still smelled yummy but the salt was starting to crystalize the dough making it harder to keep any shape at all so, I whipped up a brand new batch of play-dough.
This recipe is really easy to make with little helpers.
Punky quietly played for over an hour.
One.solid.hour.
Bliss!!
