TikTok has provided Sidney and I with countless hours of entertainment. But besides the constant laughs, it has also given us a lot of ideas. Over the weekend, I stole a recipe I saw on the platform for Peeps Edible Play-Doh.
I convinced Sloan to help me make it—well, as you can imagine, there really wasn’t any convincing. We used Peeps, powdered sugar, and coconut oil. If you want to watch the video of us making it, click here.
The first step is to place five Peeps in a mixing bowl. Any color will do! I gave Sloan the option between blue Peeps and yellow Peeps.
Next, measure out three tablespoons of powdered sugar. Pour the sugar on top of the Peeps. If you don’t mind powdered sugar getting all over the place, feel free to have your toddler assistant perform this step.
Now get out that coconut oil. Measure a tablespoon and add it to the mixing bowl. In the TikTok video I did, I admitted to everyone that I didn’t realize coconut oil wasn’t actually a liquid. My sister told me I should not have been so open about my stupidity.
You are almost there! Take the mixing bowl and place it in the microwave for 20-30 seconds. When you take it out, make sure to mix it as thoroughly as possible. If you don’t stir long enough the play-doh will be extremely sticky.
It’s play time…and snack time! Not only can your child play with the dough but they can eat it too. Sloan thought the taste deserved two thumbs up.
If you have 10 minutes, give Peeps Edible Play-Doh a try. Sloan didn’t eat all of her batch and the remaining portion dried out really fast so just keep that in mind. But if you are looking for a fun and original Easter activity to do this week, grab some Peeps at the store. Don’t Blink.
