Fantastic sensory fun for a rainy day!
Mix 2 cups of flour, 2 cups of water and 1 cup of salt.
Mix and knead until you have a good dough.
(The garlic press, a tooth pick and the imprint from a cheese grater proved favourites)
Give a lump of dough to each person.
All ages can take part (even if they only eat it in the end!)
(Use a dab of water to ‘glue’ body parts on if necessary)
Put them on a baking tray in the oven on a low heat (around 150 C) , for a long time (around 2 hours)…
And when out of the oven and cooled down, paint!

And Alfie painted each and every one of his little gingerbread men a beautiful beautiful colour…
