- thin flexible cutting boards (1 for each child)
- and disposable bowls.
- Here is the recipe for edible playdough.
So there are only 2 ingredients and mixed together they make a pretty good consistency for molding and making into fun objects.
The more you knead the less sticky it becomes. It is not a perfect measurement, although I do provide measurements here. It is a balance of the 2 ingredients.
After you make this basic recipe and knead it a bit just add more powdered sugar to stiffen it up 1 tbsp. at a time until it is the consistency you want.
Watch as we make it:
Here’s what you need for your easy 2 ingredient edible playdough.
How to Make Edible playdough
- Just combine 1 cup of frosting (any color or flavor you like)
- Add 2 1/2 cups of powdered sugar.
- If you have a countertop mixer or hand mixer it works best to mix it really thoroughly.
- If it is too sticky to the touch just add some more powdered sugar a few tbsp. at a time until it can be picked up without totally sticking to their hands.
If the playdough gets a bit dry just put a bit of olive oil on your hands and knead it through to loosen it up.
That’s how you can make 1 version of edible playdough. Here is another way we have made play dough it in the past that was easy too.
