Have you finished planning all of your Christmas gifts, yet? I have a really cute DIY Gingerbread Playdough Gift in a Jar idea with playdough gift tags. Basically, you are gifting the activity of making your own homemade playdough. You include all of the dry ingredients in your jar, then the recipient just needs oil and water to make their dough. You can download these adorable gift tags to attach and grab a gingerbread man cookie cutter from the dollar tree to finish off your gift. This is a perfect gift for your kiddo’s classmates, and you could buy the ingredients in bulk to make several. It would also be a fun stocking stuffer for your own kiddos, and then you could make it together.

Here’s what you’ll need to make one of these-
- A jar

To make the jar, layer your flour first, then seasonings, and salt.
Cut off a piece of twine to attach your cookie cutter and gift tag.
String everything on, then tie a bow around your jar. You could also laminate these tags for a little more sturdiness.
This is such a cute gift idea, and I can’t wait to make some for my son’s preschool class to take home over Christmas break! They are going to love them!
