Cinnamon Playdough

We got some darling gingerbread playdough from a friend and decided to do our own cinnamon version this year. We tweaked several recipes and came up with our own recipe.

Busy Bee gave them as a gift to all of her little friends and they were a huge hit! Best of all, it was super easy! We attached a colorful holiday cookie cutter, adorable polkadot ribbon and a personalized gift tag!

We were also sure to include the recipe, so that her little friends can whip up their own batch!

Here's the recipe:

-1 cup flour
-1/2 cup of salt
-2 taspoons of cream of tartar
-1 cup of water
-1 teaspoon of vegetable oil
-1 tablespoon of cinnamon

Mix the dry ingredients. Mix oil and water first and then add them to dry ingredients. In a pot, and on medium heat mix for about 5 minutes until it forms a ball. Allow to cool for 20 minute and then knead the dough with your hand.

We doubled the recipe and had plenty to share. We rolled the dough into balls and placed them in a mason jar. To the top of the mason jar, we added decorative scrapbooking paper and a personalized gift tag. We then finished it off with adorable ribbon, holiday cookie cutter and - of course, a copy of the recipe printed on pretty holiday paper!

Bee Happy,
