How To Make Edible Playdough With Peeps ~ Fun DYI Kids Craft

Easter is over and I am ready to put the baskets away till next year, we have a few jelly beans left,  bits and pieces of a chocolate bunny and PEEPS.  They haven’t eaten them, yet they won’t let me toss them…. what is a Mom to do?  Well you can toss it all while the kids are at school, or you can do a fun DIY craft project with your kids instead, and make edible playdough.

To make these you will need:

  • 4 Peeps (or 4 large marshmallows)
  • 3/4 teaspoon water
  • 7-9 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • coconut oil or shortening

In a medium sized microwave safe bowl, add 4 peeps and 3/4 teaspoon water.  Place in the microwave for 30 seconds, they should have doubled in size. Stir till it looks like marshmallow cream,  if it is still lumpy put back in microwave for 10 seconds more at a time. But normally 30 seconds does the trick. You can now start mixing in the powered sugar, I mix it in 1 tablespoon at a time. Once it forms a soft ball take it out and kneed in the rest of the powdered sugar. But before you take it out coat your hands with coconut oil or shortening so it will not stick to your hands.  Dust your counter with powdered sugar to keep it from sticking to the counter.

The whole process only takes about 5 minutes. It will form a soft dough that is fun for kids to play with, and is totally edible too! It is full to roll out and cut shapes out with small cookie cutters. This recipe forms a ball of dough about the size of a lime, perfect for one child to play with.  You can double the recipe but will just need to adjusting the microwave time, but make sure you only cook it in short segments or you will scorch or burn them.
