How to Make Edible Peanut Butter Playdough

When it’s summer, I make it a point to indulge my children in various craft activities to let their creative juices flow. The other day I came across an interesting way to make an edible playdough with peanut butter. There are various recipes to make the no-bake playdough, but I am sharing my favorite one here.

Peanut Butter Playdough Recipe


  • Peanut butter- 1 cup
  • Powdered or icing sugar- 2 cups
  • Honey- 1/2 cup


All you have to do is stir the ingredients together in a bowl with a spoon or using an electric mixer until a soft dough is formed. Grab an airtight container or a plastic bag, and put your sweet peanut butter playdough inside.

Since kids often have a habit of putting everything into their mouth, I felt it was safer to make something edible as well as healthy. Just keep in mind that storing the playdough in a clean airtight container is a must as it lasts only for a few days. Now it feels nice whenever I find my little ones making some praise-worthy culinary treats with the homemade playdough rather than sitting idle at home.
