Ok this is soooo cool. I was watching a show earlier and the mom made edible playdoh for the kids. This is so easy and looks like fun to play with...then when its time to clean up you eat it!! LOL!! All you need is Powdered Milk, Peanut butter and honey. Yep thats it. Now mix equal parts of each and kneed till you have a dough. Equal parts meaning if you use one cup of powdered milk add one cup of peanut butter and one cup of honey. If you have a few children you might want to do 2 or 3 cups of each. I suppose if you want to get fancy you could add a drop or two of food coloring to it. I havent tried this yet but Im going to the store tomorrow to get what I need. I really think the kids would enjoy making it, playing with and eating it. Gives new meaning to dont play with your food!! LOL!

Once you get the honey incorpirated into the milk and peanut butter its not sticky. The mixing part might be better for an adult to do. They said it smells like peanut butter cookies. YUM! Way better than that nasty playdoh smell we all know and Hate!! LOL!

Yes it works wonderfull. And no its not sticky once you have it together. I ended up addinf just a small amount of flour to it as well. Hope your son has fun with it.

Aaahhh...gone are the days when mother used to cook my playdough over the stove and put in tons of salt and something else. That wasn't very tasty, but it didn't kill me when I ate it...then again, I ate lots of other things too. Now, does it make a difference if the peanut butter is chunky or not?

I dont know how well the nuts would hold up but you could try. I made it and used regular smooth PB and it worked great.

My mom made something like that for my son once. If you let it sit out it gets just as hard as the regular playdoh. Although after rolling it around on the table and who knows where else I am not sure I would want my kid eating it. Plus what about when they get the real stuff and try to eat it?

Thats where rules come in. You tell them they can ONLY play with it at the table. And of course you clean the table first so theres nothing to get into the dough. And you tell them if you do get real playdoh not to eat it. They might try a bit but once they realize its not good they wont eat it.

2 thumbs up to the mother that thought of that. i think that is an excellent idea, especially when you have a younger child that loves to play with it and loves to put everything in their mouths and eat it to. good for her. i'll have to look into that on how to make it for my two year old. LOL! God bless

Thats what I thought. All small children like to try everything they play with. Atleast this would be ok for them to eat.
