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
