“Don’t eat that!” are familiar words we say when our youngsters are playing with play dough, right? But what if they COULD eat it?

Leigh Ann Towne found a recipe that is a “win-win” in her household because her son Bronson loves marshmallows and he loves play dough, hence, DIY Marshmallow Play dough makes sense.


  • 6 large marshmallows or 60 little
  • 3 tablespoons (more like 6) of corn starch
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil (but other oils work just fine)
  • Food coloring

Directions: put all of the ingredients into a microwave safe bowl, cook for 30 seconds. Mix with a spoon at once when removed. It will be slimy at first, but keep kneading it, adding more corn starch as you go until you get a play dough consistency.
There are other variations of DIY play dough, that are not edible, but super easy to make.

The best thing to do is search Pinterest. Have fun!
