Play Dough Gingerbread People

Play Dough Gingerbread People

After decorating gingerbread houses this morning, this afternoon I whipped up a batch of delicious-smelling and amazingly soft gingerbread play dough for Miss G to play with.

In addition to the play dough, I set out several things create gingerbread people with, including a rolling pin, cookie cutters, buttons, straw pieces, jingle bells, ribbon bits, and toothpicks.

Gracen dove in as she usually does and the play dough gingerbread people began rolling out of the kitchen.

She came up with so many fun ways to decorate them, some more traditional, and some a little more abstract…

The best part is that this dough smells so amazing that you sometimes forget that it’s just play dough and not actual gingerbread baking in the oven. ☺
