Christmas Scented Glitter Playdoh
It definitely looks interesting with “Lotion” as an ingredient but it does have a better feel to it than some of the other recipes I’ve tried.

Gingerbread: Cinnamon & Ginger
See notes above for my recommendations
She used two 16 oz (450g) boxes of corn starch, and it produced a lot of dough.
Slowly mix lotion into the starch until the desired dough consistency is reached.
You can add more or less lotion to give you different dough consistencies.
She used a full 20 oz bottle of lotion, and it gave me an amazingly soft and glorious play dough.
Once the dough is mixed divide it into equal parts. She divided her dough into four bowls and made four play dough varieties.
In one bowl she added yellow watercolors and a few drops of vanilla extract to give a sugar cookie play dough.
In another bowl she mixed green watercolors and peppermint extract to make peppermint play dough.
Red watercolors and a few sprinkles of cinnamon spice gave a cinnamon play dough.
To make the gingerbread play dough she used brown watercolors along with cinnamon spice, nutmeg, and clove. To get the perfect gingerbread aroma you will want to use more cinnamon than the other spices
