Since finding the recipe for peanut butter playdough last year, I’ve whipped up more than one batch. This is a fun, simple, and extra-sweet yet still edible activity that a child of any age would love. I will again be using a post I did on my family blog last year because I’m
lazy such a good manager of time I don’t want to recreate what was already created. I found the recipe here.
This activity again met my two main requirements: cheap, easy, and inexpensive plus all of the ingredients were in my cupboards. To make enough for 2-3 kids, you will need:
1 c. peanut butter
2 c. powdered sugar
1/2 c. honey
I was originally going to halve this recipe, but then I decided I’d go ahead and make a whole batch so we could play with it again. If you’re just making this for one child, halving the recipe will still give you more than enough. While you can refrigerate and use again the next day, it is not as pliable and fun to play with after getting cold.
I heeded the advice of the blogger who originally posted this recipe and mixed this up in my mixer. I dumped in the ingredients then let Dash turn on the mixer and watch it do its thing.
Next it was time for a taste test.
Super rich and a little heavy on the honey flavor, but not bad. I definitely ate more of it than I should have.
As long as there are no peanut allergies in your house, this activity is perfect for kids! Oh, who am I kidding? I love the entire process, too. There’s something fun about being able to eat playdough.
