The idea crossed my mind that mixing the frosting with flour would make a play dough type manipulative. A quick search on Pinterest showed me that you can mix frosting with powdered sugar to make a delicious EDIBLE and super easy frosting play dough!

All you have to do is dump your leftover (or entire can) of frosting into a bowl. Add powdered sugar until you get the consistency you desire. I could stir for a bit with a wooden spoon but soon needed to use my fingers.

And then it was time to head outside! I gave each student a paper plate and a handful. I asked them to form letters and then try some as they pleased. I did make sure to warn them not to eat too much or they would have a tummy ache!
