17 Jan Playdough for School Holidays
The Bubba Organics team loves making Playdough with the kids – holiday fun. Little ones love to create with playdough, although sometimes they can get a little carried away and want to taste their creations! We’ve tracked down 4 fabulous edible solutions to help get you through the summer holidays.
Peanut Butter Playdough
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup milk powder
1/2 cup sugar food colouring (optional)
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl until desired consistency is achieved. Wrap firmly in plastic wrap and store in the fridge.
Ice Cream Playdough
1 cup Pre-made frosting (in any colour)
2 3/4 cup Powdered Sugar
Add the powdered sugar to the frosting in slow increments using the dough hook attachment on your mixer, continually scraping the sides of the bowl. Use a slow speed on your mixer (no need to go too fast because this dough is pretty thick). Before you add all of the powdered sugar, to the play dough and, if it feels at all sticky, add the rest of the powered sugar in. It WILL take a lot more powdered sugar that it looks like (just continue to test the “stickyness” and say no to sticky play dough). Once you’ve added all of the powdered sugar, the play dough will begin to look just like ice cream in your mixer. Roll it into one big ball and make sure it is not crumbly or sticky. If, by chance, you added a little too much powdered sugar, simply sprinkle a little olive oil onto the play dough.
Allergy Free Edible Playdough
1/3 cup margarine
1/3 cup glucose syrup
1/2 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 3/4 cups icing sugar
food colouring (optional)
Mix the margarine, glucose syrup, salt and vanilla together in a large bowl. Add the icing sugar and knead until smooth. Wrap in plastic wrap and store in the fridge. Glucose syrup can usually be found in the cake section of the supermarket.
Easy Edible Playdough
1 packet cake mix
250 grams softened butter
3 tablespoons water
Mix cake mix and butter in a large bowl. Add 1 tablespoon of water at a time until desired consistency is achieved. Wrap in plastic wrap and store in the fridge.
