Cinnamon Scented Play Dough

cinnamon play dough recipe

Our tutorial for Brighton Mums this month is this quick and easy Christmas present idea for your little one or their chums. This cinnamon scented play dough is simple to make and can be packaged up with festive cookie cutters.

Basic ingredients:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 cups warm water
  • 1 cup salt
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoons cream of tartar (optional for improved elasticity)
  • Food colouring
  • Ground cinnamon

Begin by mixing all the ingredients together in a pan over a low heat, making sure you stir continuously. The dough will start off as a soupy slush  and begin to thicken. Keep cooking until it clumps in the centre then remove from the heat and allow it to cool.
