Peanut Butter Dough Creations:
Make your creations and eat them!
1 cup peanut butter ~1 cup honey ~2 cups powdered milk (use just the powder) Mix all
the ingredients in a bowl. If needed, add more powdered milk to make the dough
workable. (NOTE: children under 1 and maybe 2 should not have honey, try
using brown sugar and liquid milk to make it workable. Also, make sure
none of the children have PB allergies).
Need paper plates, markers or crayons, yarn or string
Have the children decorate the plate with colors. Next, have an adult cut out a
spiral shape from the plate, leaving a 1 1/2" center circle. Tie the
string onto the center. Let the kids "fly" their kites.
