Who knew there were so many different kinds of edible play dough? If only I'd thought of it, I would have made that instead of buying the yucky smelling Play Doh in the stores.

Here's one with peanut butter. Caution: don't make this if there's even the slightest potential for a peanut allergy whether eaten, touched or breathed in. Mix one 18 ounce jar of creamy peanut butter with 6 tablespoons of honey and 3/4 cup of non-fat dry milk. You may have to vary the amount of non-fat dry milk to reach the consistency you want. Store peanut butter play dough in an airtight container.

You can make Kool Aid play dough as follows: Mix 1 cup, of flour, 1 package of unsweetened Kool Aid, 1 teaspoon of cream of tartar, and 1/2 cup of salt together. Add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil and 1 cup of water. Cook over medium heat until the mixture forms a ball. Spread out onto a piece of waxed paper or a bread board. Knead the dough and then store in an airtight container, where the dough will last several weeks.

To make cornstarch play dough, combine 1 cup of cornstarch, 1 pound of baking soda, 1 cup of water, 1/8 teaspoon of oil and some food coloring in a large pot. (Make sure you use oil and food coloring that are safe for your allergy.) Cook over medium heat until the dough is a "mealy" consistency. Let the dough cool on a plate covered by a damp cloth. Knead the dough well and store in an airtight container.
