I found a neat Easter craft for your kids.

How to make Play-Doh from marshmallow Peeps.

Does this work? Watch the video and see.



Well, that didn't goes as I suspected. Hmmm...

If you'd like to try this here is the recipe that I got from Growing a Jeweled Rose's site.

  • 5 Peeps
  • 3 tbsp of corn starch (corn flour in the UK)
  • 1 & 1/2 tsp of coconut oil (other oils will also work)
  • Optional:  Food coloring for rich coloring
Combine the above ingredients in a microwave-safe bowl, and heat until the Peeps expand (roughly 30 seconds). Carefully remove the bowl from the microwave, and begin mixing the ingredients with a spoon.  Once cool enough finish kneading and mixing the dough with your hands. Now it's ready to be used.
Maybe the results will be better for you? I found it to be a sticky mess.
Good luck!
