Gingerbread Play Dough


I cup plain flour

1//4 cup salt

2 teaspoon Cream of Tartar

3 teaspoon sweet cinnamon

2 teaspoon ground ginger

1 cup of boiling water

1 tablespoon vegetable oil


  1. Put all the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix
  2. Add the boiling water and oil
  3. Mix with a mixer or by hand until a dough forms
  4. Then take it out of the bowl to cool and knead , adding extra flour if still sticky.

I added some loose parts like buttons and pom moms or eyes from Hobbycraft

We also had a gingerbread shaped cutter and a wooden Lanka Kade figure with a copy of the story book.


Children should be supervised with any small loose parts and with boiling water.


Have fun!
