Easter

Peep Playdough

I don’t eat peeps. I know for some it is a special occasion when peeps show up back in the store. For me, though, I can’t stand them. I like roasted marshmallows or rice krispy treats, but I can’t stand peeps. Weird? I don’t know. But I can’t do it. I will, however, make things with peeps. Peep Playdough is our newest peep creation and it is so fun!  Try this fun Easter Activity for kids from toddler, preschool, pre-k, kindergarten, first grade, and 2nd graders too.

Have fun playing with this EASY-to-make, EDIBLE, Easter Peep Playdough! This makes such a fun activity for kids of all ages in April.

Peep Playdough

Not only is this playdough fun, it is so super easy to make. Kids can essentially make it themselves, with supervision. It does have one part that the marshmallows are melted and that can cause burn if they touch it.  This peep playdough is not your typical playdough texture, though. I still loved it. Alot. It felt slightly harder to squeeze, which felt good on my hands. So as someone who types a lot, this is a great stress ball type material. For children, though, it will still be fun to play with. It squeezes just fine, it’s just different. This is such a fun Easter activities for toddlers, preschoolers, kindergartners, grade 1, and grade 2 students.

Edible peeps playdough

We started by taking the peeps and placing them in a microwave safe bowl. I put them in the microwave for 30 seconds. By the time they were done the peeps had expanded, almost over the side of the bowl.

I brought the bowl out and we added 2 TBS of vegetable oil. I think any oil would work, though.
Next we stirred.

When that was combined, we did add a little extra color to the mix so the color would be more bold. This is not required though, it was still a purple color. 

Next put cornstarch in the bowl. Start with about ¾ of a cup. You can’t do too much, though. It doesn’t absorb it very quickly.

Once it forms into a ball, you can keep kneading it in the bowl or put it on the counter. I would highly suggest coating your fingers and counter with corn starch prior to putting it on the counter. It is still sticky at this point.

Keep adding cornstarch until it is no longer sticky. This did take about 5 minutes to make it not sticky.
