Gingerbread Playdough

To start off our Christmas theme we made this lovely and very simple aromatic play dough. After making our normal no cook play dough I added some ginger and cinnamon to give that lovely smell of Christmas spices. 

Offering the children the play dough together with some gingerbread men and star cutters together with a rolling pin and buttons led to some lovely men that the children were very proud of. The children also enjoyed cutting out and decorating stars. Our three year old even experimented with the shapes, working out that if he squeezed the star cutter he could make a shape resembling a Christmas tree!

Once we had quite a range of little gingerbread men, our eldest decided that she would make a gingerbread woman to add to the party so she added some gingerbread ponytails to feminise her creation.
