Children learn best when they create memories and have something tangible in front of them. This activity combines making a delicious, healthy treat with an educational experience. After creating the Incredible, Edible, Alphabetical Play Dough, children can practice creating the letters of the alphabet. Forget erasers and frustration´┐Ż if your child makes a mistake they can simply re-work the play dough. If they succeed, reward them by allowing them to eat the letter they created!

What you'll need:

  • 1 Cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 T. honey
  • Nonfat dry milk
  • Bowl
  • Wooden spoon
  • Measuring cups
  • Ziploc bag
How to make your alphabet play dough:
  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine peanut butter and honey. (see photos)
  2. Take the nonfat dry milk and stir in enough to form pliable dough. Make sure that the dough is still soft, but not sticky. (see photos)
  3. On a clean surface, have your child create the letter "A" out of the play dough. If your child needs help, show him or her how to roll out two longer sticks and a shorter stick. This will reinforce the way the letter should be written. Gather the play dough into a ball and work to create each of the letters of the alphabet. (see photos)
  4. When not in use, store the play dough in a Ziploc bag in the refrigerator. (see photos)
