Just the thought of this makes me happy. Memories of playing with play dough and the smell of Christmas all wrapped into one! (seriously - the play dough smells so good and spicy!!)
Mix dry ingredients.
Next mix water and oil together than add to dry ingredients. Put in sauce pan cook on medium 2-3 minutes. You can add a few drops of red and green food coloring in this if you want it to be an extra dark brown color.
Stir constantly till dough pulls away from sides.

Take out and knead - sprinkle cinnamon on the table to make it easier and get the right constancy.
Store in closed container.
* Be sure and get your cinnamon cheap - I go to the dollar store.
* I split up the piles and added red glitter to one and gold to the other.
* You could skip the cinnamon and replace it with more flour and add peppermint extract to make peppermint play dough!
Unfortunately non of the above recipes is edible. I heard you can do 1c peanut butter, 1 c dry powdered milk and 2-3 tbsp of honey for an edible play dough variation! Why not throw in some cinnamon to that mixture too!
While I wasn't looking (I sware I put the food coloring far away from her) somehow my daughter managed to find the bottles and while I was typing up this post, proceded to pour it all over her play dough. . As mad as I was the
crazy blogger sweet side of me came out and I thought well at least this will add some humor to the post! And BTW, it makes it a very DEEP brown with the additional food coloring!
