Peanutty Playdough

In an effort to do more hands-on activities {a.k.a. being the Fun Mom}, I'm digging into some books I have on hand for easy crafts & science experiments. I'm planning on incorporating these ideas on Fridays, as that is usually a light schooling or catch-up day. Tatiana has dubbed it "Creative Fun Fridays". So here was our first activity:

Peanutty Playdough
from the Ultimate Book of Kid Concoctions: More than 65 Wacky, Wild & Crazy Concoctions

1/4 c. peanut butter

1/2 c. dry milk powder

2 T. honey
{I used corn syrup as I didn't have any honey}

Place all ingredients in a ziploc bag & knead together until dough forms. Do NOT reuse or save for later use.

Mine was a bit on the crumbly side so probably could've used another drop or two of corn syrup. This only makes a small amount, say enough for two young children. If you have more than two or several "olders", you might want to double the recipe.

Best part? It's edible! Great for little ones who aren't over the putting-everything-in-my-mouth stage or just for yummy eating after playing!
