DIY Gingerbread Playdough

Great for any time of the year!

This playdough is great for the senses — from the squishy feel to the intoxicating aroma!

It also looks and smells just like real gingerbread dough, but no worries, if your child is tempted to take a taste, this all natural formula won’t hurt them a bit.



  1. Put the dry ingredients in a medium saucepan and whisk to combine.
  2. Add the water and oil, and stir together.
  3. Cook on medium heat for 3-5 minutes, stirring constantly, until the dough comes away from the sides of the pan and forms a ball in the center, a silicone spoon works really well for this. It will look lumpy, but don't worry.
  4. Turn the warm dough out onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead it a few times until it is smooth and not sticky. Lightly flour your hands if necessary.
  5. Store the playdough in an airtight baggie or container.
