How To: Make Edible Yogurt Play Doh

You’re trying to get something done and your toddler is running after you, screaming for your attention… Sound familiar?

No worries!  Take 5 minutes to mix together 2 ingredients that are already in your kitchen!

My child is a hungry hungry hippo, so she will put anything within arm’s reach straight into her mouth.  When I want to give her something to amuse her for a few minutes, I need to make sure it’s taste-safe.

Luckily, all you need for this recipe is yogurt and cornstarch!  Both, taste-safe ingredients make for a fun, attention grabbing activity that your child can do in their high chair while you get things done.

I’m not going to write a few hundred words that you’ll simply scroll through in order to get to the recipe!  Here it is!

What you’ll need:

2 containers of baby yogurt (a little less than 1 cup)

1 heaping cup of Corn Starch

Throw both ingredients into a bowl and mix until well combined.

If your dough is crumbly, add yogurt.

If your dough is sticky, add corn starch.

It’s just that simple and it makes a ton!

You could easily cut the recipe in half if you want to save ingredients or you have the feeling it will end up on the floor.

It keeps well for a few days in a ziplock bag in the fridge.

  1. Love this take on playdough- especially since I don’t have to watch my one and a half year old like a hawk while he plays with it. Definitely pinning for later, and I’ll see you around #wanderingwednesdays!

    1. Thank you! I fear my little one may never stop putting things in her mouth, so I went ahead and tried an alternative that worked great!

    1. I’m so glad! Mine eats anything within reach so I had to make something completely edible…and she eats it! But she adores it and I hope your little one does too!

  2. This sounds great, so simple! We love playdoh in our house, and the lack of colours to get mixed up appeals to me 🙂 And even better that my little one could play with it too without me having to watch him every second – he loves to put everything in his mouth! Thanks for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove

    1. It’s fabulous to keep your little one busy while you’re doing something and not have to worry about them! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. What a fantastic idea! My one-year-old LOVES playdoh but I always catch her eating it so this would be perfect for her! Thanks for linking this up to #thursdayteam

    1. Mine is just the same. She has definitely taken a few mouthfuls of this one and has been just fine! Hope this gives you a little stress free play time!
