Stone Cottage Edible Play Dough

This is one of the easiest recipes ever.  It is tasty, nutritious and kids love it!  You probably have the ingredients sitting in your cupboard waiting for the fun to begin!   

Stone Cottage Edible Play Dough

1 Cup Peanut Butter
1 Cup Honey
1 Cup Powdered Milk
1 Cup Oatmeal 

That's it.  Dump it all in a bowl.  Mix well. 

Lay out wax paper for each child, whether they are short or tall.  (We seem to have a lot of tall children around here, disguised as grown ups.)  Give each child a scoop of dough.  I usually start with about a half cup per child.   

Grab some cookie cutters.  Have small bowls of goodies like dried fruit, candy dots, chocolate chips, mixed nuts, sugar sprinkles or coconut.   Use Stone Cottage Edible Play Dough to shape all kinds of critters and pretty things.  Accessorise the creations with the goodies.  You can also paint them with edible finger paint!

Here's the fun part!  Gobble them up! 

If there are leftovers, make small balls of Stone Cottage Edible Play Dough and chill.  You can roll them in chopped nuts, colored sugar, coconut, cocoa or mini chocolate chips.  You can even dunk them in melted chocolate for a scrumptious treat.

Be creative!  Share our joy!

  1. Wish I could use this with my preschoolers but we have a peanut allergy in the group. It sounds really great, though.

  2. When I was a kid, my sister and I made play-doh all the time. Momma had the recipe and it was wonderful. Thanks for sharing!
