Who says you can’t play with your food??? We had so much fun making, playing with, and eating this playdough! This was an activity I did with my first graders when we were exploring the life cycle of a butterfly and I decided to try it out with Big Brother this year. He enjoyed learning about butterflies (especially since our butterflies are currently in the “chrysalis” state), but would rather just stamp this “edible playdough” with cookie cutters. Oh, and it’s really yummy (I should know, I hate A LOT of it). :)
It contains LOTS of peanut butter, so be careful if you have someone with peanut allergies around. I’m wondering if you could use SunButter instead? If anybody tries it out, let me know!
Half of an 18 oz. jar of creamy peanut butter (9 oz.)
3/4 cup nonfat dry milk
3 Tablespoons honey
1. Add all of the ingredients to a bowl.
2. Mix together and check the consistency. If it is still too sticky to handle, add more dry milk. You should be able to roll it in your hands with very little sticking to them.
3. Get started playing! Little Brother stared eating it right away (surprise, surprise).
Add M&M’s for decoration!
Use letter cookie cutters to stamp letters into the dough.
Evidence of a mess = Fun was had by all!
Store in an airtight plastic container and refrigerate (I’m not sure if you really have to refrigerate, but since it has dry milk in it, I think it might be a good idea).
