Edible Peanut Butter Play Dough
I signed on to the 12 months of sensory dough sensory play challenge as a way to try out new types of sensory play materials! I love the idea of messy play experiences and want to introduce my son to a variety of different textures! This month we are making edible peanut butter play dough! We usually always use a non-toxic home-made play dough anyway, but I doubt it is very yummy although taste safe! Liam is not usually a big fan of play dough, but he was interested to know that he could eat it and play with it.
Edible Peanut Butter Play Dough Set Up
I wanted to make an edible play dough with items we already had in the pantry since I wasn’t sure how well it would be received. These days I make sure our activities are as frugal as possible. I did a quick google search and found a recipe that called for peanut butter, dry milk and honey from Dealicious Mom. So easy and yes we did have an envelope of dry milk or two in the cupboard! Edible Peanut Butter Play Dough here we come! He chose to watch the mixing process. (The dry milk was a bit lumpy and I didn’t bother to fix it.) It still came together just fine! I stuck it in the fridge for a while as well.

I really wanted him to just feel this awesome edible peanut butter play dough! He definitely got right in it with his hands and pulled it all out.
