Edible Play-dough!!!!

March 2, 2011 at 3:28 pm 11 comments

For my last speech I told how you would make edible play-dough!  I just thought it would be a fun demonstration to share because I know that a lot of teenagers baby-sit and some of the adults in our class have children so I thought what would be better than to give them people a way to involve their kids in a very fun activity!

I enjoyed this demonstration speech because it was a lot of fun and you could eat it which made it 10 times better!  I always remember playing with play-dough at my grandparents house when I was younger, but you only got so much you weren’t allowed to mix your colors and $5.oo for a handful of play-dough is outrageous to me!  So this way I had more freedom to do what I wanted mix what I wanted and just have fun!  I don’t however think I did as well on this speech as I could have I was still a little nervous and trying to talk while doing making something is kind of hard but my next speech can only get better I hope!

The Recipe for the edible play-dough I made is

1 cup of powdered or dried milk

1/2 cup of peanut butter

1/2 cup of honey

Mix all these ingredients together in a bowl either using a spoon or your hands.(The food coloring is optional)

    You did a great job!
    The play- dough looked a little funny but it really didn’t taste that bad. you’re right about it being a good activity for younger kids!
    Nice job! =]

    I thought that the playdough tasted a lil funny to me, but for the mostpart it was a really neat idea to try with the kids! I’m always looking for new things to try when babysitting and this kinda fits into the peanut butter “taffy” kind of fun!
    Oh and for all who have kids who like eating their activities… Peanut butter taffy is made by first putting butter all over your hands, take a regular sized marshmallow, make a slice and stuff a slab of PB in it and start mushing and pulling and kneading until it becomes like taffy. Takes forever but, like the edible playdough, it’s a fun edible activity!
