We love playdough at our house. I kinda have an addiction on making different scented playdough for my children.

A couple of weeks ago, we made candy cane edible playdough and my daughter had fun working on number recognition with the free candy cane playdough mats.

This week we decided we needed to have some sensory play with gingerbread playdough.

My children had so much fun with the gingerbread playdough that they decided to make more for little gifts for their cousins and friends. We just placed a ball of playdough in a baggie, tied a ribbon around it, and added a cookie cutter that we purchased at the dollar store. 

They also want to make some for their Sunday School teachers. 

It’s an activity that keeps them busy while I am filling out Christmas cards or working on my Christmas planner.

Who do you plan on making this easy playdough gingerbread recipe for?
