Peanut Butter Play Dough Recipes

Do your kids like to eat while they craft? Then these edible play dough recipes might come in handy. We've included several options...each with your younger crafters in mind.

Check out these ideas...and ENJOY!

***z-googleleftalign300x250.shtml***The following recipes provide you with some easy crafts for your younger child.

The great thing about a play dough recipe activity is that it allows children to experience different textures and use four out of their five senses. Encourage creativity by putting out cookie cutters, little bowls, lids from jars, measuring spoons... and add to their fun by giving them Cheerios, Rice Krispies, Corn Flakes, colored cake decorating sprinkles/dots, chocolate chips, ice cream cones and animal crackers.

Before you begin, cover your work surface with waxed paper or a plastic tablecloth and let the children have a good time!

Please Note: These recipes contain peanut butter. If you are unsure if a child in your care is allergic to peanuts or not, do not use the recipes in this collection.

Peanut Butter/Graham Cracker Play Dough

Equal amounts of Peanut Butter and Marshmallow Cream

Graham Crackers

First, have the children wash their hands before beginning so they can safely lick their fingers during this project.

Allow children to crumble up graham crackers into crumbs, then set these aside. Let them have just a little touch of the Marshmallow Cream and a little touch of peanut butter to feel the different textures and to lick off their fingers.

Mix the peanut butter and marshmallow cream together and have the children notice the change in texture. Cover surface area with wax paper or use a breadboard, let children make into shapes. Roll shapes in Graham Cracker crumbs, then eat!
