Peanut Butter Playdough is a fun and edible kid activity!
I saw this fun idea for Peanut Butter Playdough from Kids Activities Blog, and we just had to try it out! Miss Magoo and Little Man thought it was so funny that we were “making” play dough with marshmallows and peanut butter.
Honestly, I wasn’t sure it was going to work. I’m a bit of a skeptic. But we gave it a try anyway, and the peanut butter playdough turned out just the texture of regular playdough (though a bit stickier). The kids were able to roll it and make shapes out of it. And of course, they could also eat the peanut butter playdough. That was definitely exciting for them!
Ingredients Per Child:
- 3 Marshmallows
- 2 Tbsp. Peanut Butter
- 1 Tbsp. (approximately) powdered sugar
To make it, put the marshmallows and peanut butter in a small bowl.
Microwave 10-15 seconds, just until the marshmallows are softened (don’t over-microwave, or the peanut butter playdough will turn out really stiff).
Stir the mixture, until the peanut butter and marshmallow are combined well.
Add the powdered sugar. As you stir, the mixture should start to separate from the bowl. If it’s still sticking to the bowl, add a tiny bit more powdered sugar and stir more.
You can sprinkle powdered sugar on the table if you’re worried about the peanut butter playdough sticking, which is what I did the first time we made this. However, it didn’t really stick, so the second time we made it we played with it straight on the table, and it was just fine.
It was so funny, because I didn’t say anything to the kids about the fact that it was edible, but they helped make it, so they saw what we put in it. Miss Magoo sneaked a little bite, and I said, “Did you eat that?” and her eyes got huge- she thought she had done something wrong. We had a good laugh about it! And Little Man was excited that his sister had made the discovery that it was edible, so he could eat it too!
We also had fun with cookie cutters and the peanut butter playdough. Miss Magoo enjoyed trying to read what the cookie cutters said when they are backwards. Then she would push them into the playdough and find out if she was right.
You know what? I tried the peanut butter playdough, and it was actually pretty tasty!
So the next time you need a quick and easy activity for the little ones, give this peanut butter playdough a try! It’s fun and delicious!
