All children love to play with play dough. But not all parents like this activity ! The crumbs that stick everywhere, the chemical smell and the fact that the little ones often want to eat them discourage parents from offering play dough !

What's the solution ? Make a safe and even edible play dough !

In this way, the whole family will be able to have fun creating various objects and animals with a play dough that will not make crumbs everywhere in the house.

Here is a recipe that is easy to make !

This is a very moldable ball after you make it, but it isn’t crumbly like play dough, so there weren’t any bits that fell onto the floor. It was kind of a cross between silly putty and play dough. The clean up was actually easy !

First of all, protect your table, cover it well. Parchment paper taped to the table and or a silicone baking mat.

Now here's what you will need :

- 6 large marshmallows

- ¼ cup (65 g) cornstarch

- 2 teaspoons coconut oil

- 12 drops of food coloring

- Cookie cutters ( optional )

Directions :

  1. Pour marshmallows, corn starch and coconut oil into a microwave-safe bowl.

2. Microwave on high for 30 seconds or until marshmallows expand.

3. Add the food coloring on marshmallows or coconut oil ( not on cornstarch ).

4. Stir with a spoon to mix all the ingredients.

5. When the dough becomes difficult to stir, use your hands until the color and ingredients are completely combined. Be careful not to burn yourself.

If it's too sticky, add more corn starch. If it's still too sticky, add more coconut oil. Cover your hands with coconut oil to prevent the dough from sticking to it.

This play dough is harder than commercial play dough, but it is also more stretchier. It flattens very easily on the parchment paper.
