Mother’s MacGyver things in desperation. This week, Edible Playdough was needed.
I was looking for something fun. Something both Sofia and Stella could connect over, to play together, bearing in mind their 5 year age gap; this can sometimes be extremely tricky. We’re at a point with Stella where Playdough seems perfect but the safety precautions needed to be taken while she plays with it are not always possible. Trying to find some safe, independent play options was how we came up with the idea of Edible Playdough. Was there such a thing? With a quick visit to Pinterest, I realized myself, along with many other’s had a need for safe Playdough. Apparently everyone and their dog knows about it.
DIY Edible Playdough to the rescue!
Hunting down one I thought would work best for the girls and their sensitive skin, but also easy to make with very little ingredients for my sanity. I found a delicious… I mean super easy edible playdough recipe and got to making our first batch. IT WAS A SUCCESS!
Made a second batch and filmed a little tutorial (or vlog if you will). Because why not?!
Happy safe playing!
- 1 cup icing
- 2 3/4 cup icing sugar
- Mix together prepared icing and 2 cups of icing sugar. Slowly add the remainder of icing sugar mixing as you go with your hands to ensure you don't add too much. Only add as much as you need, when the playdough comes together and isn't sticky.
