  • I tried one when I worked at was the peanut butter one.

    The girls and I made playdough today...not edible but scented. It turned out too sticky to do anything with. I added a tiny bit of water and kneaded some extracts into their old dry playdough and revived it instead of using the too-sticky homemade one. We just tossed it.

  • about 9 oz. of peanut butter
    about 3 tbsp. of honey
    about 3/4 cups of powdered milk
    1-2 drops of food coloring of your choice-optional.

    Mix all ingredients well. Add powdered milk until the playdough is workable with your hands

  • I prefer the non-edible kind though.:
    Mix together 1 c flour, 1/2 csalt, 2 tbs oil, and 1 pack unsweetened Kool-aid.
    Add the cup of boiling water. Mix well.
    Knead the mixture until it forms a soft dough can add more water oe flour as needed.

  • well the non-edible kind is technically all edible but it doesn't taste good so you can start working on 'don't put this in your mouth'. IMO form experience the edible playdough...even though it is delicious :09 teaches them, well, my son at least, that it was okay to eat all play dough. WE had a problem at daycare one day. lol.
