    This sounds like a great activity and your son looks so happy too! I appreciate your lesson on how to make the peanut butter play dough because I can do this when I babysit! I’m curious how it tastes (probably delicious) my husband loves peanut butter and it might be a fun activity for him as well… haha. Thanks again for this recipe and idea! When you say duration of activity, does that mean how long before the peanut butter play dough should be thrown out or eaten?

      Haha, I am happy if you would try this activity when you babysit or even for your husband! It tastes absurdly delicious with a rich taste of peanut butter mixed with milk. There are other recipes about mixing one cup of honey instead of a teaspoon, but I feel it is rather too sweet, this ratio is just nice.The duration of the activity is how long you can expect to play the dough with the little one, considering the fact that they have short attention span. 🙂

    This sounds great. I think it is great that your children are encouraged to help you make it. I’m not sure that the playdough you buy in shops is non-toxic so this is great. Children who put everything in their mouths could play with this quite safely. The easy fun with toddlers would be a great book for many young mums.

      Hi Margaret,

      Yes, you are right, that is the idea of doing this safe playdough at home with our children. And if they are not allergic to nuts, this will be a great snack!

    This sounds like a lot of fun and way safer than the commercial play dough selling in the toy store. This dough smells sweet and children have the tendency to smell it and accidentally swallow it when the adults aren’t watching.

    Quick question about the peanut play dough. Can you store the balance in the fridge for the next play time? How long will the dough-like consistency last?

    1. Jenna Post author

      Haha you are absolutely right Cathy, I remember I felt like eating the play dough when I was a little kid, I just loved the smell too much. In responding to that “need”, thus peanut butter play dough is made. To answer your question, I stored the balance in the fridge up to 7 days before and the consistency is still fine (moist) due to the fat in the peanut butter, but it is not recommended to be eaten, the best is up to three days.

    Hi there, wow! I love this idea. I have never heard of peanut butter playdough alothough I do make the homemade stuff all the time.
    I love that there are so little ingredients to make this.
    Would you be able to store it in an airtight container once you have finished playing for the day or would you have to throw it out once it was played with? Thanks

      Hi Paula, thank you for reading this post. Yes, there are only little ingredients, so it is super easy and less fuss! Yes, you can store it in an airtight container for up to three days, but I do not recommend eating it after that, it is just for the play. If you feel wasted to throw it, eat it after playing it on the day itself or simply bake it!
