HOT! That’s what it is outside for many across the country. You try and get out early in the morning with the kids, and spend your day at the pool. For many though, you’re stuck inside trying to entertain the kids.
If you’re on Pinterest, search Goop. Tons of recipes come up. I’m sure you’ll find one to please your crowd.
How about some Peanut Butter Play Dough?
You will need …
Nonstick cooking spray
¼ cup honey
¼ cup nonfat dry milk powder
6 tablespoons peanut butter
½ cup crushed crisp rice cereal
Spray the bowl with nonstick cooking spray. Add the honey and dry milk powder to the bowl and mix well. Add the peanut butter and mix until smooth. Stir in the cereal. Use as edible modeling clay.
Note: To serve as a snack, shape the peanut butter mixture into ½ inch balls and roll in the cereal. Dip into melted chocolate if desired. Store in the refrigerator.
For some fun in the sun consider letting the kids paint with pudding, shaving cream, or colored ice cubes .
What have you tried indoors or out with the kids to keep them entertained in the kitchen when it’s hot?
