I started making basic homemade playdough for my girls and they loved it so much I started playing around with the recipe! Recently I’ve been experimenting with seasonal scented playdough like this Gingerbread playdough and the Sugar cookie homemade playdough I shared awhile ago.  The recipe can make 2 cups of playdough for pennies and in under 5 minutes! It also lasts for up to 3 months if kept in an air tight container.

This Gingerbread playdough smells good enough to eat!  It really does. Keira called it the “brown one” though which doesn’t sound quite as nice as the “gingerbread one”.

My girls like to use the gingerbread playdough to make armies of gingerbread men by using a kids rolling pin, gingerbread cookie cutters and buttons. 

It honestly keeps them busy for hours, and they are obsessed with playing with it!

  1. I think this would be great to play with but I’d be afraid they’d want to eat it because it would smell so good
