Edible Playdough

On Tuesday, I headed out to get my hair done (because folks, it was looking rather shabby). 

So my MIL watched the kids for a few hours.

And because she loves keeping these kids busy with creative play, they made edible playdough using peanut butter.



First, you will need to create edible playdough. My  MIL used this recipe here. A total of 3 ingredients.  That is my kind of recipe! If you are lactose intolerant, I believe you can substitute corn meal for the dried milk.

Roll out the dough as you would for cookies.  I did a rough roll out, but basically until it was about 1-2 inches thick. But roll out to your preferance! 

Grab some cookie cutters


 And make some shapes!!!


Grab some treats from around your cupboards. Whatever you have on hand will work. 

We used: 

*Red hots (Sean kept eating these. They didn't seem to bother him a bit. For some adults I know, this is  horrifying.)

*Chocolate chips and hershey kisses

*Sliced almonds



Madi enjoyed decorating her shapes.  And they taste pretty good too!

Just a quick note. You don't have to chill the dough before decorating it, but if you want to pick it up and place it on a sheet, (or eat it!)  it is rather sticky.  So if you prefer, leave it in the fridge for about 20 minutes and it should help firm up the dough.


This little girl had a great time.  I hope your kids enjoy it too!

Plus, if they eat it….you won't have a heart attack. 

Edible playdough for the win!
