"You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up."

Deuteronomy 6:5-7

Having A Little Fun

Even though currently, I have 3 boys, that doesn't mean we don't enjoy a good craft every now and then. By now, my boys have learned they have a mom that loves to do crafts and they have become happy to play their part.

This project was actually Jacob's idea so I can't even take credit.

Edible Peanut Butter Playdough
It calls for just a few basic ingredients that yield lots of fun and smiles.

In a mixer, beat ingredients together.
*Warning-with children involved, this is a messy project!

It will end up looking something like this...

For best playdoh results, divide into equal portions and refrigerate before attempting to play with it. Afterwards, you can do this...

Or this...

Or this...

And even this...

The best part about this recipe is it really tastes yummy. Because I prefer NOT to play with my food before I eat it, I covered mine with chocolate!

The lesson we learned today, you can have fun with what you eat! This recipe makes a whole lot so I would suggest cutting it in half.

Peanut Butter Playdough
3 1/2 C peanut butter
4 C confectioners sugar
3 1/2 C honey
4 C dry milk powder

In a large bowl, cream together peanut butter and sugar, then beat in honey and hold in milk powder. Divide into 15 equal portions and refrigerate or freeze until ready to use.
