What you’ll need to make bunny peeps play dough recipe
4 table spoons of corn starch
1 Table Spoon of Coconut Oil
(Optional )Food Coloring to make the colors really pop!
You’re going to place the peeps in the microwave for about 30 seconds. They’ll expand and get pretty puffy. Once they’re out add the corn starch, coconut oil and food coloring (although some of the colors really don’t need it)
Mix all the ingredients and begin working them into a ball. It’s going to be pretty gooey but you can sprinkle a little more corn starch to take away the stickiness and make it pliable.
It will soon be the consistency of a stretchy play dough.That your kids can work with, play with,
Roll out, and do whatever it is they want to! Even cut into shapes.
This fun play dough is the perfect fun for those leftover peeps, or as a fun sensory activity.

“Peep and Egg: I’m Not Using the Potty” stars Peep, an adorable yellow chick & her younger sibling named Egg. When Peep explains to Egg that it’s time to learn how to use the potty, a tug of war ensues.

This is so neat!! I think my kids would love to see the peep “grow” in the microwave!! This would be a fun Easter activity!!

What a neat recipe.
The purple berries are elderberries. Purple elderberries are edible (the red ones are NOT). Purple elderberries should only be eaten when fully ripe, not green. Also elderberries should be cooked (or fermented as for wine) prior to eating. They can cause stomach upset in some people and cooking removes that potential. I actually don” think they”re all that tasty but they are super medicinal. Be sure you”re properly identifying before eating, of course. There are other berries that may look similar. The red berries are thimbleberries and edible. They grow in the rocky mountain west and are a bit like a raspberry. Can be eaten raw.
Now this looks like a great way to use peeps. Very neat with all the vibrant colors for play dough. I would much rather make playdo with them than eat them.
