Edible Play Dough Recipe
On TLC’s Jon and Kate Plus 8, super-mom of eight, Kate Gosselin, shared her edible peanut butter play dough recipe with viewers, as part of their family’s Valentines Day activities. What could be better than play dough you can make together with your children and also eat for a treat, especially if your children are at the age where they‘d rather eat their art!
- Peanut butter
- Powdered milk
In addition to those 3 ingredients, Kate threw in a little flour to help with consistency. This will come in handy if your play dough turns out to be not quite firm enough for sculpting into shapes. You can add a little food coloring if your child is set on a specific color dough. You might want to consider covering the play area with wax paper for easier clean-up. After mixing all the ingredients together thoroughly in a bowl and kneading a bit, have the kids wash up (if they haven’t already) and supply them with several cookie cutters. A few raisins, Cheerios, Rice Krispies, or M&Ms wouldn’t be a bad idea either. This will help your kids experiment with different textures, while having fun and getting creative with snack time! Your preschool-age children are sure to enjoy this special activity/snack. Store the play dough in an airtight plastic bag or container in the refrigerator, that is, if there‘s any left!
The Gosselin family includes busy parents: Jon and Kate, twins girls: Cara and Madelyn "Mady" who will turn 8 in October and sextuplets (3 boys and 3 girls): Aaden, Collin, Joel, Hannah, Leah and Alexis who will turn 4 on May 10th. And I thought MY life was hectic with close to a half-dozen kids! After watching Jon and Kate Plus 8, my sleep deprivation and terrible two challenges don't seem nearly so bad afterall.
