Kids love playdough from their toddler days right up on through the elementary years. Heck! I’m a grown woman and I can still dig sitting down and making awesomely awesome creations with it! There is something relaxing and just plain fun about a squishy ball of dough!  Make it edible playdough though and you have reached a whole new level of fun! Edible playdough appeals to their senses of taste, sight, touch, and smell and that my friends will make you the coolest Mom on the block. This Edible Peanut Butter Playdough is no exception to that.


Have kids that love play-doh but worried about them getting hurt or sick from it? This Edible Peanut Butter Playdough is perfect for you! No ingredients you can't pronounce and just as awesome as the "real" thing!

Got a kid with fine motor issues? Playing with dough is one of the best ways to strengthen those muscles. Tired of wrestling store bought playdough out of your sensory loving child’s mouth? Ehhhhh..this ones safe (and yummy)  let them nibble a bit. This is a great activity to bring out for rainy days or when you need 30 minutes of peace to get dinner on. It works great with rollers, cookie cutters, or small figures and cars (be sure to wash well before and afterwards).

The best part about this craft is that it really is super simple to put together. So simple in fact, the kids can help you with it!  You can also add a little honey to sweeten it up but since I really don’t want my Emma eating the entire batch and getting a stomach ache or sugar rush, I tend leave it out of mine. If you do add honey, you will need to add more powdered sugar to stiffen it up to the consistency you’re looking for.




You Will Need:

  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon





Grab a small to medium sized mixing bowl and combine all of the ingredients. Mix well until they’re well combined. If your dough is still too sticky, work in more powdered sugar until you get a consistency that is firm enough to mold and play with.




Store in the refrigerator in an air tight container when you’re not using it. It will firm up when it is chilled but will warm up, but since it is made of peanut butter, it will relax once it reaches room temperature. If it becomes a bit dry you can extend the life a bit by adding a little oil-coconut or vegetable. Toss after it has become too crumbly to use!
