In which I discover a creative way to eat lunch and play with it too…

I made homemade, edible Play Dough. It’s quick, it’s simple, and you can incorporate it into a very fun lunch time experience.
The best part is that it contains a natural sweetener, dairy, and protein. Great huh? Just add some fruit, a veggie or two, and you’ve got a pretty well-rounded lunch. Plus, what kid DOESN’T like playing with his or her food?

2 cups powdered milk
2 cups creamy peanut butter
1 cup honey

  1. Combine ingredients in a bowl and stir until well blended.
  2. Shape, admire, and eat! 🙂

It’s also fun for an afternoon snack. Cut up a variety of veggies and fruit so the kids can create a fun, animal farm with their lunch. Use raisins, apples, celery, carrots, and many others.
My kids loved it. So did I! 🙂
