Peanut Butter Play-doh!!!

Thank you for visiting Little House in the Suburbs. If you like what you see, please SUBSCRIBE.


My kids live on this stuff, but I’ve realized recently that it’s not as well known as I thought. Maybe some people just use it for occasional playtime, but in my house, it’s lunch.

Peanut Butter Play-doh

big blob of peanut butter
decent squeeze of honey
coffee grinder full of dry milk

(It’s an EXACT science, you see.)

1. Put peanut butter and honey in a bowl.


2. Buzz your dry milk in the grinder.


3. Shake some milk into the bowl and stir it all together.


4. Keep adding milk until you think you can make a stiff putty. Mash it until it’s well mixed.

5. Roll into balls and pack in the kids’ lunches.

Just remember–no honey until after age 1.

Can that be made with all-natural peanut butter? (ingrediants: peanuts, peanut oil, salt) The stuff that has to be refridgerated and stirred? I like the idea (and I absolutely love honey and peanut butter, honey and bread, licking honey off a spoon…) but don’t want to switch back 🙁

@Sharon–I use natural PB. Depending on the consistency, it might take more or less powdered milk to get a good putty, but other than that it’s just the same.

Just made these dairy-free for our boys! Used Kraft 100% Natural peanut butter (ingredient: roasted peanuts), raw (local) honey and Vance’s DariFree milk (powder)! These are really good!! Vance’s is so fine that you do not need to use the coffee grinder! Just mix it in! I just made ours about the size of a small marble.
Thanks for such a cool, simple, really good recipe!! The boys gobbled these up!
