Han asked today if I'd make "edible sand," something she saw in a magazine. I didn't have the ingredients for it, so I made edible play dough instead. They are having a blast, and I have time to take a break get my work done!
Edible Play Dough
1 box cake mix that you bought for a recipe then decided not to make
1/2 stick of butter @ room temp/soft
1/3 of cream cheese block left out since breakfast, so its at room temp
Mix all together for about 3-4 minutes in (preferably) a stand mixer. It should start to really clump together.
Use trays to keep clean, washed hands and kitchen tools to play!
