Just a Minute: Edible Playdough

Mothers never cease to amaze me. Especially Wonder Woman Kate Gosselin of wee TV's Jon and Kate Plus 8 who finds inventive ways to buy more time. To see her latest fun and time saving activity,


On last night's episode, the Gosselin clan celebrated Valentine's Day with a whole bunch of hoopla and a delilicious mold-able treat — edible play dough. Made of equal parts peanut butter, honey and powdered milk (Kate also added a bit of flour for consistency), the sculpting dough served as an activity and then a snack for the sextuplets.

I want to try this for myself! When they showed the kids eating it, it looked so good. I think they do a great job with the kids. She is always doing some activity with all of the kids. It has to be a lot of work.

Haha I agree Jon looks miserable a lot of the time... Kate is really rude to him a lot. And not that I can criticize bc I don't have 8 kids but... they always seem like they need to get their s**t together!! SOOO disorganized! If you have 8 kids I think you need to plan things out better & realize that everything is going to take u longer than you expect

I don't think jon looks miserable. He is just on a mission always! With 8 kids you have to be. Kate and Jon are both amazing in my book. I love that they do things for the 8 kids the same way they would do it if they had 2! Pretty interesting.

Wow, that's a pretty grim outlood on Jon AnnaLove. I just sent this to myself to save it for my baby boy. I love creative ways to do crafts with kids and one that's edible, even better!

Those kids are so cute! I think one day, though, we're gonna hear on the news Jon Gosselin committed suicide. He always looks so miserable.

I just love Jon & Kate and their kids!!!! I never miss their show and I'm so happy they have no intention of ever stopping it!!!! The edible dough was a great idea!!! I personally can't stand the smell of Play Doh so I can't wait to try this for my granddaughter!!!A word to the wise though be sure your child doesn't have any peanut allergies or sensitivities, and is ok to eat peanut butter!!!!Some pediatricians I know don't want kids to have peanut butter before the age of 2 or 3 yrs.

She really is amazing. She always keeps that house together and they both provide as much as they can for their kids.
