Have you ever seen a kid try to take a taste of playdoh while playing? I am sure they have all been tempted at one point or another. 

This great edible playdough is a perfect way to no have to worry about it because not only is it all food, it’s delicious too! Have fun playing and tasting as you go.

Rainy gray days are the perfect time for indoor projects. Little Dude is an outdoor kid, he love riding bikes and playing in the dirt.

So after a long day of clouds and drizzle, we were ready for some entertainment.  He suggested we make some slime.

We still have a ton of ingredients for the clear slime recipe we made for his DIY science birthday party.  As we were discussing that option I remembered we had a lot of fun making this peanut butter chocolate playdoh when he was a wee one.

So I suggested we do it again and he was on board. It is a fabulous way to let your kids get involved in the kitchen.

They can work on reading the recipe, measuring ingredients and stirring it all up.  Of course the bonus is having a lot of fun when you are done and a treat too!

He gathered up his little rolling pin and some cookie cutters while I gathered ingredients. Then he measured the peanut butter in our adjust a cup measuring cup

He loves getting to push out sticky ingredients in that thing!

Once we mixed up the dough, we went to work playing.  I formed a train and he cut out shapes with cookie cutters.

We rolled snakes and balls.  Of course he taste tested too. 

It was a great way to pass some time on a dreary day!

Here is the original post from when we made the dough in 2015:

 Little Dude is a big helper.  He loves to be involved in everything we are doing.

So, today I thought it would be fun if we “cooked” something.  So we drug his table into the kitchen and went to work.

Little Dude likes to help pour ingredients into a bowl.  Stirring is fun too, though keeping everything in the bowl is a challenge.

But he is a guy after my own heart, because tasting is his favorite part!  He really enjoyed our playdough adventures. 

Little Dude is really into choo-choos right now, so we made him a train.  He quickly ate the smokestack right off!

 It was nice to have something we could play with and he could taste without me having to tell him no.  We made a mess, but we had so much fun!

Making Heat Treated Flour:

If you are worried about the presence of raw flour in this dough, don’t despair! We can fix that.

To heat treat flour you just spread flour over a parchment lined baking pan. Bake it at 350 F for 7 minutes.  Let the flour cool completely before using.

He loves to help in the kitchen, so it was fun to make something he could really dive right into! Plus if we didn't like what we designed, we could just eat it!

What a great idea, Carlee! No need to worry if someone decides they want to give the playdoh a little taste. :)

It might have tasted too good though, we spent as much time tasting as playing!! We really enjoyed it though.
