Making Gingerbread Cloud Dough

The children have been talking about The gingerbread man, so we suggested making some special gingerbread cloud dough. Together, we looked on the internet to find a recipe.The children worked well, following the adults instructions to make the dough.

  • 4 cups of flour 
  • 3 Tablespoons of cinnamon 
  • 2 Tablespoons of ginger
  • Half a cup of vegetable oil.

They used their hands to mix the ingredients together before tipping it into a tray.

Using their sense of small they experienced the sent of different spices, cinnamon and ginger.

The children explored the dough making marks with their hand and a paint brush. The Older children practiced writing some of the letters in their name.

Why not try it with you child at home…
