Gingerbread Playdough

1 cup Flour

1/4 cup Salt

2 tsp Cream of Tartar

1 cup Water

1 1/2  or 2 TBSP Vegetable Oil

1 – 2 tsp ground Cinnamon

1- 2 tsp ground Ginger

1 tsp ground Nutmeg

1 tsp ground Cloves

Mix all ingredients in a sauce pan (Mix the dry ingredients and add the wet ingredients separately.) Stir until your mixture resembles cake batter.  It may still have a few lumps in it at this point. Cook slowly over medium heat, stirring constantly. Once the mixture forms one large “clump”, remove the dough from the heat, and knead by hand until smooth.

Caution…let cool before you let little fingers touch it.  It will be very hot at this point.

Yields: 2 cups of playdough
