So I know being 6 years old was a very, very, very long time ago for me, but I still remember getting the recipe for this edible playdough and LOVING it when my mom would make it! So I thought it would be so fun to try it out with Leah and see what she thought! Plus, it gave us a great activity to do together.
This was my first time making this, since as a 6 year old my mom was the one in charge, but it’s pretty darn simple!
Edible Playdough Tutorial
Here is the recipe for edible playdough:
- 1 cup icing sugar
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1/4 cup corn syrup
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl. Tip – add a few drops of oil to your measuring cup and wipe it around with a paper towel to help the peanut butter and corn syrup slide out.
I tried stirring first, but that didn’t work very well.
So I switched to using my hands and had to kneed it a little bit.
I pulled off a chunk for Leah to play with and it didn’t even last long enough for me to get a photo before she started eating it!
I did manage to get her to play with it a little bit. But mostly she just wanted to eat it. Which was fine by me. Perhaps not the healthiest snack, but she and I both thought it tasted really good. Exactly how I remember it! (Except, my memory was of it being healthier than it really is… ha!)
And then we sealed up the leftover edible playdough in a zip lock bag for tomorrow. This was a fun trip down memory lane!
