Sensational Saturday: Peanut Butter Play-Doh

I’m always on the lookout for new dough recipes to try out with Trevor.  Working with dough is a great fine motor and sensory exercise.  This time we made Peanut Butter Play-Doh.  Not only is it fun to play with, but it smells and, according to Trevor, tastes great too!  He ate a ton of it, so much in fact that it spoiled his dinner, lol 🙂

What you need:

  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • approx. 1/2 cup cornmeal

How to make it:

  1. Mix together the peanut butter and honey.
  2. Slowly add in the cornmeal until you reach your desired consistency.  Depending on the creaminess of your peanut butter you may have to use more or less than 1/2 cup.
  3. Roll it, knead it, smash it, etc just like Play-Doh.

Helping push the peanut butter into the bowl:

You gotta lick the spoon!

Concentrating on squeezing the honey:

Stir it up:

Squish!

Squeeze!

Pull!

Excited about the ball of dough:

Making sure it still tastes good:

He thought it was funny when I made him a snowman out of the dough:
