You'll be more popular than the Easter bunny when you turn Peeps into DIY play dough

Traditional homemade play dough is always a hit with kids — but add in Peeps (an Easter-time must) and you're upping the ante.

Your kids will love diving in and getting their hands dirty mixing together their own Peeps play dough in a rainbow of colors. Did we mention this DIY smells better than it looks? The cherry on top is that you'll have enough Peeps left over to sneak a few in your mouth, too. Prepare for a major sugar high, because Peeps play dough is coming in hot.

Supplies:

  • Peeps
  • Coconut oil (or other oil)
  • Cornstarch
  • Cream of tartar
  • Microwave-safe bowl

Directions:

2. Add 1/2 tablespoon of coconut oil to the bowl with the Peeps. If you don't have coconut oil on hand, any oil will work.
