KID PROJECT: TURN CANDY INTO PLAY DOUGH!  {This dough has such a fun texture!  Good luck putting it down}
Why not use some of the Easter candy your kids are sure to have too much of- and make play dough! 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 mix food coloring into the play dough for richer coloring.  We did decide to add a bit of extra coloring, and  I LOVED the results

How to make PEEPS play dough- what a fun way to use some of that Easter candy the kids are sure to have too much of!


That's it!  This play dough takes seconds to make and has such a fun texture!  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.  Once you have it mixed give kids cookie cutters and other play tools, and they will surely have a blast!  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!

Note:  If you don't have Peeps in your country you can make the same type of play dough using marshmallows.  Check out our marshmallow dough recipe for full details.
