Seasonal Surprises - Gingerbread Playdough

Hello everyone and happy Thursday! What a busy but fast week!

Thought I'd share something fun which we're using tomorrow, something I made in a fit of seasonal spontaneity this afternoon!

Gingerbread scented playdough. Can I just stress, this smells aaaammmmaaaazzzziiiinnnngggg! I love adding scents and flavours to playdough, the children love it, it is a lovely sensory treat and the added bonus is that it makes the classroom smell great too!

We've been doing a little work on The Gingerbread Man so making Gingerbread men at the playdough table was always going to happen and what better way than to actually let the children get a whiff of what The Gingerbread Man would have actually smelled like.

Here's the recipe:

  • 2 cups of plain flour
  • 1 cup of salt
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 2 heaped tablespoons of Cream of Tartar
  • 1.5 cups of boiling water (add gradually, you mightn't need it all!)
  • 1 tablespoon of ground ginger
  • 2 tablespoons of ground cinnamon
  • a few drops of Glycerine (not essential, it's just an option to make your playdough shiny!)

Someone messaged me recently about Cream of Tartar, it can be hard to find and expensive in the likes of Tesco, so I stock up whenever I see it in Aldi. At only 75c a tub there, it's a bargain!

Let me know if you try it.
