Kids in the Kitchen – Edible Playdough April 21, 2008

I recently came across the coolest book to add to my ever-growing collection, The Ultimate Book of Kid Concoctions, and found a ton of fun ideas to do with the Pearls. After seeing the John & Kate Plus 8 episode where Kate made the Edible Playdough, I decided, “Hey, if she can do it with 8 kids, I certainly can for my measly two!” Her recipe was slightly different as she used equal parts of Peanut Butter, Dry Milk & Honey. The Kid Concoctions recipe was as follows:

Peanutty Play Dough (Edible)

1/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup non-fat dry milk
1/2 TBL honey

Combine all in bowl or in Ziploc bag and knead until mixture turns to dough. (Do not reuse or store this dough, however.) Use this dough to create a variety of edible sculptures. Use raisins or other assorted treats to add eyes, mouths and other features to your sculptures! I doubled this recipe for two Pearls.

So just like the show, I didn’t tell the kids that it was edible, but they quickly figured it out! I had to laugh when on the show they remarked, “the kids’ piles kept getting smaller and smaller…” Here’s a review in pictures, you can see how much it was enjoyed. Overall, I’d give it a positive review and we’ll make it again.
