Peanut Butter Play Dough

I guarantee this is the yummiest play dough your kids will ever play with, and it’s unbelievably easy to make!

In a bowl, combine 6 large marshmallows (we use Dandies) and 4 tablespoons peanut butter. Microwave for about 15 to 20 seconds, until the marshmallows sotfen. Stir together.

Add about 2 to 3 tablespoons powdered sugar, stirring with a spoon to combine and then working the dough with your hands until it is no longer sticky. Although there were still some chunks of marshmallow visible, our dough worked great.

I had intended this as a sensory project for Veronika, but big brother Travis loved it, too! First Veronika just enjoyed picking up the dough…

…and was delighted when she noticed it tasted sweet!

Her favorite thing to do was poke at it with craft sticks, or tap it with her fingers.

Meanwhile, Travis had fun forming the dough. We rolled it into snakes and patted it into flat pancakes.

Then we used leftover Halloween cookie cutters. It made fantastic shapes!

Note: Make sure to cover the play dough if you want to play with it over multiple sessions, as it will dry out and become crumbly.
