This Easter you'll find those colorful and sweet Peeps in every candy aisle and Easter basket, but you can do a lot more than just eat those marshmallow treats. In just a few minutes, you can make Peeps Playdough that is super easy and edible. How sweet is that?

Here's What You Need For Peeps Play Dough:

5 Peeps

3 TBSP of powdered sugar or corn starch

1 & 1/2 tsp of coconut oil

Here's What You Do:

Combine everything in a microwave safe bowl and place in the microwave for 30 seconds. Bonus: When the Peeps are heated, they grow! Your kids will love this mini science experiment.

Carefully remove from the microwave and use a spoon to mix all the ingredients.

Once cooled, take the dough out and knead with your hands for a minute or two. Let the dough sit for another two minutes. Then it's ready to be played with and even tasted!

Since Peeps come in some many colors, you can make a small batch for just about every color of the rainbow. If your dough gets a little sticky you can add more powdered sugar or corn starch to get it back to the perfect playdough consistency. Be sure to store the dough in an airtight container so it doesn't dry out.
