Valentine Heart Peeps Playdough Recipe

peeps playdough ingredients

Valentine Heart Peeps Playdough Ingredients:

  • 4 Heart Peeps
  • 8-10 Tbsp Flour
  • 1 Tbsp Crisco

How To Make Valentine Heart Peeps Playdough

STEP 1: Gather all your ingredients

My biggest advice is not to eye-ball it! It's tempting, I know! But to be sure it comes out perfectly, I like to measure everything and then put all the ingredients nearby to avoid creating a mess in the kitchen. Less stuff to clean up later on!

STEP 2: Put all the ingredients in a bowl

Place the 4 heart peeps, 8 tablespoons of flour, and the Crisco into a microwave-safe bowl. Get your toddlers and preschoolers involved with this step.

STEP 3: Put it in the microwave

Microwave the ingredients for 30 seconds. Take out and mix everything together. If your dough is sticky, try to add a little more flour.

STEP 4: Time to knead!

Take out of the bowl and knead in hands for about a minute. Add a little more flour if the playdough it’s sticking to your hands, but not too much.

STEP 5: Playtime!

Your Valentine peeps playdough is ready to play with. The fun now begins!

Set up the peeps playdough with a selection of playdough tools and some heart shaped cookie cutters. Adding heart sprinkles and a few cupcake cases or empty chocolate boxes will add to the fun.

Invite your toddler or preschooler to make heart shapes, pretend cakes and boxes of pink chocolates!

Let their imaginations run away with them and see what they create!

How to store peeps playdough

This peeps playdough can be stored in an airtight baggie for up to a week, no more. However if your toddler or preschooler is likely to eat the playdough I would advice making it fresh each time.  If you decide to store your peeps playdough when you want to use it again, reheat it in the microwave for about 10 seconds to soften it before play. But, don't forget to let it cool for a minute before giving it to little kids!
