Now, the Peeps were something we only saw people do challenges with on youtube, but when I saw it get turned into an edible play dough, I wanted to try it! I heard about this from a fellow homeschool blogger mom, 123Homeschool4me.com, who is a great home educator and very inspiring to me! Her recipe has a special ingredient, that really seems to make it work out awesome! Please, visit her site to check it out.
Here we go with our attempt!
So all you need is some peeps, flour, and the secret ingredient.
Place 5 peeps in a bowl, add your 3 TBSP of Flour, and 2 TBSP of Crisco, then microwave for 30 seconds.
They will PUFF up really nice, and all you need to do is take a fork and mix it up.
If it’s too sticky, I found that adding a bit more flour helped smooth it out.
In the end, you will have a nice, warm dough that is really fun to play with.
My 3-year-old buddy really took to it and loved playing with it, here he is in action with this fun, brightly colored and SUPER EASY Recipe for a bit of fun, and great fine motor skills activity.
We found that after a while it does get a bit stiff, but if you place it back in the microwave for 5 seconds, it warms right back up! ~Alexandra
