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.
