Super Easy Homemade Play-Doh So Safe You Could Eat It

Whether or not you have a toddler guilty of eating the Play-Doh they play with or a child with Special sensory needs, this in-home, edible Play-Doh recipe is the perfect solution. For the child who can’t keep their hands out of their mouth, this is Play-Doh that can actually be swallowed. For the child needing a relaxing, yet stimulating play, this dough can provide proprioceptive input to the whole body.


Since most children with sensory processing disorders like to smell and taste the items they play with, this is a great way to remove all worry. No matter the needs of your child, it’s always better to take precaution. Are you ready to make playtime safe? It only takes a few minutes and your child won’t even notice the difference.

Ingredients You’ll Need

– 6 large marshmallows
– 3 tbsp corn starch
– 2 tsp coconut oil
– Several drops of your favorite neon food coloring

Step One


 Let the journey to edible Play-Doh begin! Add the marshmallows, corn starch and coconut oil to a medium-sized, microwaveable bowl. Microwave the ingredients on high for 30 seconds. Repeat this step if your marshmallows haven’t melted enough to lose form.

Step Two


 You’re one step closer to safer Play-Doh! Add your choice of food coloring. Stir all the ingredients together until it’s too hard to stir, then use your hands to knead the dough until it’s completely combined. Your child will love helping with this step! Once your first batch is done, you can repeat these steps, each time adding a different color.

Step Three


 The work is now over and the fun begins! Join your child in playing with your new, edible dough. Stretch it, roll it, mold it, and remember that you can eat it!
