We were supposed to go see Santa today, but two little boys with two runny noses kept us home. It was okay, though, because we took advantage of being homebound by mixing up some homemade gingerbread playdough! We used the simple, no-cook recipe here: Atkinson Drive Oatmeal Playdough. Except for the food coloring, I had all of the ingredients on hand. We just omitted the color and added extra cinnamon to give it a more gingerbread-ish appearance and smell. Our first batch was a little dry (probably because of our whole wheat flour) so I added a couple of tablespoons of oil to the second batch.
