We delight in making Peeps play dough every spring. The process is fun, and I love that this project takes candy and turns it into a fun activity!

  • You can add additional food coloring at this time if more vibrant coloring is desired.
  • Once cool enough finish kneading and mixing the dough with your hands.  Add more corn starch as needed until the desired consistency is reached.

Oh, and one other thing to love about this play dough is that it is TASTE-SAFE, making it fun for kids of all ages!

Tips & Resources:  
  • If you don't have Peeps candy in your country you can make the same type of play dough using marshmallows.  Check out our marshmallow dough recipe for full details.
  • We purchased our Peeps candy in a variety of colors from Amazon here.
  • If the dough is at all sticky just knead in more corn starch.  I used quite a bit of corn starch throughout the mixing process to get the desired consistency.
  • I recommend using neon food coloring if you are adding extra coloring to your Peeps play dough.  The colors are super vibrant and perfect for Spring!
  • We used coconut oil to make our play dough, but other cooking oils can also be used.  The coconut oil we used can be found here.
  • Peeps play dough is meant for one-time use and should be discarded after play.
