Autumnal Marshmallow Play Dough

At play group BB has discovered play dough. He also helped make pizzas for dinner the other day. I was shocked, he actually managed to help roll the dough out without putting it in his mouth. That is a miracle. Anyway, it has been a while since we last made play dough, so I thought that it would fun to try making taste safe autumnal marshmallow play dough.

Make sure you follow my play dough board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

You will need:

  • 6 large marshmallows
  • Food colouring
  • ¼ cup corn flour
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • Pumpkin spice optional
  • Rolling pin
  • Cookie cutters

Please note that this will only work in a microwave. I tried doing this on the stove, but it was a massive fail.

In a microwaveable bowl add all the ingredients and cook for 30 seconds. The marshmallows should have puffed up.

Mix them all together until they form a dough.

Before you start to kneed the dough you will need to coat your hands with the coconut oil so that it doesn’t stick to your hands. I also covered the work service with corn flour. Keep kneading it and adding oil and corn flour as needed.

When it is ready set it out on the table with a rolling pin and cookie cutters. I did keep adding a little corn flour every time it started to become really sticky.

BB really loved playing with his autumnal marshmallow play dough. He wouldn’t even let me touch it! Every time I picked up a little bit he would take it out of my hands. This play dough also stores really nicely. A week later and it is still useable.
