I have fond memories of running around outside on blustery days when I was a child. Sadly, my children have thus far spent their life in the land of no seasons. They are something like shocked when the temperature drops below 70 degrees. Misty wet weather, like we had last week, sends them running inside (and then bouncing off the walls!)
My mom reminded me of this fun treat a few days ago when I called her, slightly desperate for creative ideas. You take a large glop of peanut butter and add honey. Don't ask me how much - I didn't measure any of this. Until it looks right. :) Stir together, then slowly stir in whole wheat flour until it reaches the consistency of soft play dough. Serve with a variety of fun foods that can be stuck on/into the dough, such as nuts, seeds, raisins, oats, etc. Whatever you have in your cupboard!
The kids had a great time - Thomas was thrilled that he was being told to play with his food!
And it tastes like peanut butter cookies. :)
Yes, it's a little messy, but hands wash!
