Senosry Play Marshmallow Play Dough recipe for Mini Chef Mondays! Easy and fun recipe for kids using breakfast cereal like Cocoa and Fruity Pebbles, Marshmallows, Cornstarch, and Coconut Oil! This recipe is sponsored by Post Foods.
I’ll never forget the first time googling “my kid ate playdough” and finding out it was okay, but then I tasted it and gagged! I’ll never forget taking the big blob of blue playdough out of her mouth and brushing it off of her teeth. 😮 She liked the salty taste. Thankfully she now knows that we’re not supposed to eat it and just play with it.
Playdough isn’t for eating, but kids put things in their mouth, am I right? That’s why we like to play with an edible playdough recipe – it’s not for eating, but it’s made with edible ingredients. I put all the ingredients in, so I know what’s going in her mouth. The first time we made edible playdough it was a flour recipe and it was kind of dry and it tasted horrible too. That’s when we moved to an edible marshmallow playdough recipe. She can safely eat her snacks while playing with her homemade playdough recipe.
Homemade playdough can get sticky really quickly when little hands are playing, so instead of adding more cornstarch, we like to add in some Cocoa Pebbles and Fruity Pebbles. Also, by adding the pebbles you add a crunchy texture which is even better sensory play for kids.
Kids love seeing the color and it you can even smell the chocolate and fruity flavors from the cereal. There’s no added mess either!
My daughter said it looks like solid cereal and milk, she thinks her homemade marshmallow playdough is so much more fun and she really enjoys pulling it apart. 🙂
We keep our playdough in a plastic bag for 2-3 days before we make a new batch to play with. It even doubles for great molded decorations for cakes and cupcakes!
