Edible Play Dough Craft
Make play dough that you can actually encourage your kid to eat.
- A hungry sculptor:Your kid
- 1 18-ounce jar of smooth peanut butter or soynut butter
- Rolled oats
- Powdered milk
- A big bowl
- A wooden spoon
- Wax paper
- Wash your sculptor's hands—it's no fun to finish your masterpiece only to discover that you got dirt smudged all over it.
- Scoop the peanut butter or soynut butter into the bowl.
- Have your child slowly add two cups each of rolled oats and powdered milk.
- Squirt in 2/3 cup of honey.
- Stir with a wooden spoon until it's well blended.
- Spread wax paper out on the table and put a large blob of dough onto the wax paper.
- Roll up your kid's sleeves—sculpting is hard enough without your sleeves getting in the way.
- Let your kid get sculpting. Oh no! Does the cow have one too many legs? No problem. Have your kid eat one off. The tree a bit too tall? Take a bite. You know, while you're at it, you might as well taste a little as well. There's no better morning pick-me-up like a play-dough pancake to go with your coffee.
