How to make Gingerbread Playdough:

1. Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl.

2. In a sauce pan – combine the water and the oil. Pour in the dry ingredients and mix until it looks like cake batter. It may have some lumps. That is ok.

4. In just a minute or two when it has thickened, remove from heat. It should become one big “lump” or ball.

5. Allow it to cool until you can touch it.

7. Continue kneading until it is to the consistency of regular play dough. All your kids to play and enjoy!

Can you make gingerbread playdough recipe without cream of tartar?

You can but we find this method to be the easiest and most simple to make. Gingerbread playdough no cream of tartar tends to require more steps and more ingredients. If kids are helping to make this, it is easier to just make it with cream of tartar I think. If you like imagination tree playdough, you will like this.
