gingerbread man playdough

You know when you hit on a good idea when it lasts for most the day! In Little Boos advent a few days ago was a gingerbread man  cookie cutter.  This was so that we could make gingerbread men using the play dough recipe I had pinned.  This is the BEST play dough we have used it smells amazing and I think that the spices really help with the consistency of the play dough. Anyway thank you to 2 big 2 little  for the wonderful idea.

I have used their recipe as follows

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp cloves 
The smell is AMAZING! We did not have cloves so I just omitted this it was still great.  We played with this for hours Little Boo kept coming back to it. We made the gingerbread men then decorated them.  This was great for counting as Little Boo counted two eyes then counted on the buttons that she wanted. Little Boo then asked for her  toy oven to cook them.  I made a baking tray for the oven (a lunch box lid with foil over it). 
We had loads of cutters apparently there was a Mommy, daddy and a baby one 

Later on when the ginger bread men were cooked the dolls had a Little tea party.
