Coffee Grounds Play Dough

Here is a good recycling use for the used coffee grounds and your kids will have a blast. There is no milk proteins or solids in this recipe so it is great for kids with milk allergies.

2 cups used, dry coffee grounds
1/2 cup salt
1-1/2 cups of cornmeal
warm water

1. Mix all the dry ingredients together.
2. Add enough warm water to moisten ingredients.

This dough has a very unique texture. Its great for rolling, patting, and pounding … which is great for little ones.

Since you are using USED coffee grounds, there shouldn’t be any problem with staining. The cornmeal should absorb any remaining coffee coloring. Because you control the moisture content you can make this as dry or as damp as you would like.

*Children should always be supervised when preparing or cooking in the kitchen.
