I am packing to spend time with my 18-month-old grandson, Nikolai while his mom & dad are in the hospital welcoming his new brother.  Babies are rarely on schedule so, I am only preparing right now.

 Me, Nikolai and Gilbert (their dog, who I lovingly referred to as GillyB) will spend a few days together… and I am collecting ‘things to do’.  We are already great crayon-artists together...and we do all of the outdoors sports including eating sticks, climbing on jungle gyms, and sliding down slides.  But, during this visit I would like to introduce him to modeling-clay or playing-dough (not to be confused with the trademarked stuff).

 When my own children were little I made edible-play-dough for them.  Recently I found a few more recipes and I thought I’d make a comparison.

Be careful!   Three of the four recipes are made with peanut butter…make sure that your child or your grown-up are not allergic.


In RED bowl:

1. My original recipe (the one I used with my own children)

1 cup creamy peanut butter

1 cup quick oats

1 cup powdered instant dry milk

1/3 cup of honey

Mix ingredients thoroughly. You can store this in an airtight container…but I usually didn’t keep it very long.

You had me a peanut butter! My two-year-old will have fun with your original recipe, thanks for sharing.

I love the title of "play with your food!"
