Know the saying “Don’t play with your food”. We say “Go ahead and have fun!”

How do people come up with these ideas with food? I guess I never played enough with my food.

Stephanie at The Tip Toe Fairy shows us how to turn fresh Peeps into play dough for the kids to play with. She uses the microwave to melt the Peeps and adds corn starch and canola oil to it. Then kneads the heck out of the Peeps till you get the right consistency.

So if you have a rainy day after Easter and there are possibly some Peeps left, bring the kids into the kitchen and make some play dough. Easy clean up, just eat it when you’re done playing!

    Can you use an oil other than Canola? (as there is a high allergy to it in my family)

    Heather, you can try. I went on to the original site that the idea came from using regular marshmallows and they made it with coconut oil. Here is the site They actually make homemade marshmallow dough. Hope this helps.
