Edible Peanut Butter Playdough
Supplies/What we used:
1 can of frosting
1.5 cups powder sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup flour
What we did:
I added all the ingredients to a bowl and mixed until I could mold it. Last, I sat it out for my oldest to play with. He got the surprise first since I made this during nap time for the younger 2.
If you want to store this playdough keep it in a plastic container in the fridge.
I gathered up some of the kids play dishes from B Toys and set the playdough up with them. We had bowls, spoons, knives, plates…
Playdough is a great sensory material. This edible playdough was perfect for sight, touch, smell, and taste.
Playdough is also great for fine motor skills practice. Just mashing it up in your hand helps work on all those little hand muscles.
He made bread and cut it up. This is a great life lesson for cutting bread and using a knife. I hope when he heads off, to college or moves out someday, he will be able to cook for himself or at least make a PBJ, lol.
I love that the tray held most of the mess. It mad for an easier clean up for myself. My 2 yr got to play with it later that day. I only gave him a small portion of the playdough with the same set up. He has a big sweet tooth so I did not want him eating the entire batch of edible playdough. I do wish I had taken his picture right as I told him the playdough was ok to eat! He had never been told that. It was quite the opposite of what I have been telling him his whole life. He processed that info and then quickly put some of the playdough in his mouth. Ummm, he said. I love that even baby brother got to get in on this activity. I gave him a few dishes and a very small amount of this playdough on his high chair tray. I just loved watching him as he explored playdough for his first time. This was the perfect multiple aged activity for my kids.
