- For safekeeping of your playdough – store it in an air tight container when not in use.
- And of course – although this gingerbread playdough recipe smells amazing, it’s just for pretend play and should NEVER be eaten.
- Please always supervise children while they play with it.
- If your dough is too sticky, add some more flour and knead through, until you get consistency you like.
