Peanut Butter Playdough


After a well-child checkup at the doctors office my girls needed a fun activity to take their minds off of the pain and terror of their immunizations. We opted for edible fun!

We found this simple Peanut Butter Playdough recipe by Jane on Make and Takes.

1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup honey
2 cups powdered sugar

Mix ingredients in a bowl and you’re done! Store in an airtight container or plastic baggie with air sucked out of the bag. (Quick tip: Spray your 1/2 cup with oil before measuring your honey and the honey will pour much easier.)
This recipe had a great consistency and was not sticky. It was also quite tasty! We love peanut butter at our house. I held the Sweet Bee off from tasting it as long as I could, since once she had a bite she just wanted to just keep eating. Guess what we had for lunch that day?!
As you can see in the pictures, we like to use cookie cutters with our playdough. A few years ago we purchased a set of 100 cookie cutters. Storing the set is kind of bothersome, but we have shapes and letters and numbers for all seasons and any mood that we happen to be in. We also do a good amount of sculpting and cutting (plastic knives are great tools).

This sounds like something my two youngest would like to do.

We keep our cookie cutters in a costco-sized butter cookie tin... the kind they have every Christmas.
