One of my favorite all time playdough recipies is for Peanut Butter Playdough. My youngest dd has a severe allergy to peanuts/treenuts. We don't use this anymore. But the older two loved it.

* 3 1/2 cups peanut butter
* 4 cups confectioners' sugar
* 3 1/2 cups honey
* 4 cups dry milk powder

In large bowl, cream together peanut butter and confectioners' sugar, then beat in honey and fold in milk powder. Divide into equal portions and refrigerate or freeze until ready to use.
We do peanut butter playdough too, except without the confectioner's sugar. I do 1 part PB, 1 part Honey, and the add dry milk until it gets to a consistency we like. Lately I've done less honey in it because DD doesn't seem to like a strong honey taste. This works really well as an activity before lunch, because we get bread and eat it for lunch
