Edible & Eco Friendly Play Dough June 20, 2013

Looking for something fun to do with your kids this summer.  This is a great way to make eco friendly and edible play dough.    This is such a fun recipe to make with big and small kids.  They can work on measuring and math skills as they make the recipe bigger or smaller.

For this recipe you will need:

2 cups of Nonfat Dry Milk

2 cups of Honey

2 cups of Peanut Butter

1 large mixing bowl

1 mixing spoon


Mix all the ingredients together in the mixing bowl in the mixing spoon.


Note for the next time we make this: we noticed that the nonfat dry milk is chunky and gave our play dough a chunky texture.  Maybe try and smash the dry milk first so the play dough is smooth.


We had to add more of the nonfat dry milk to create a better consistency in the play dough.   We slowly added it in until we got the play dough to just the right consistency.


They had a lot of fun making animals and creations with their play dough.


If you have any allergies to milk, nuts or honey then you can use some of these other fun eco friendly and edible play doughs.  These are some super cool blogs that I found with some other fun recipes to try out:
