Microwavable Gingerbread Playdough
When I was thinking about making this instead of using the recipe on her site, I decided I would just adapt this recipe for Homemade Playdough. I wanted to do something in the microwave instead of using the stovetop, and I make this Homemade Playdough all the time so I knew it would be easy to adapt.
Microwave Gingerbread Playdough
- 2 Cups Flour
- 4 Tbsp Cream of Tarter
- 1 Cup Salt
- 4 Tbsp Oil
- 2 Cups Water
- 2 Tsp Ginger
- 1 Tsp Nutmeg
- 1-2 Tbsp Ground Cinnamon
Start by mixing the dry ingredients and then adding in the remaining ingredients. Stir this until well mixed and microwave for 2 minutes. Take this out and stir it again then microwave for 2 more minutes. The cinnamon is what gives the playdough the coloring, so you will want to add enough to give it the desired color you are trying to achieve.
Let it sit to cool, and then kneed it and time to play!
This can be stored in an airtight container or Ziploc bag for up to 6 months. Be sure not to omit the Cream of Tarter as this is what makes it last longer.
We played with the rolling pin and made all sorts of shapes.
Did I also mention this playdough smells really good! Who knew playdough could actually smell good?
Lots of fun with playdough, plus a great way to keep your kids entertained while you are baking!
I am in love with this playdough, plus I love that it did not have that playdough stench. I’ll be making this throughout the year, not just for the holidays.
