SMMART ART: Gingerbread Playdough

My youngest daughter came home from preschool this week with a baggie full of GINGERBREAD PLAYDOUGH! 

Miss Marissa's Renaissance Preschool is where we got this fun holiday treat!  She said,
"I made 4 batches for 23 kids to have an individual ball, but even for just a family night, I would suggest doubling it for 3-4 kids to have plenty to play with. It is one of my favorite homemade doughs that I have ever used for preschool, both for smell and texture! Have fun!" (
Gingerbread Playdough
  • 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}
  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.
