Microwave for 30 seconds; stir. (you can add food coloring for more bold colors, but we liked the soft pastel playdough colors the Peeps made)

kneed playdough until it is well blended

When the playdough is cool enough to touch (give it a good 30-60 seconds) get in their and kneed away until you get a smooth, peeps playdough. It will only take 30 seconds or so.

Just in case you don’t have the 2 minutes to watch the video, the playdough can be stores in plastic wrap on the counter for several months. To re-warm and soften just put it in the microwave for 5-10 seconds and your dough will be back to new!
