ABOUT THE MISSION What’s better than playing with your food and then eating it? Your Mission is to do just that. It only takes a few ingredients and once ready, children can roll it and mold it into just about any shape imaginable. Wilbur does provide you with a recipe in your workbook but feel free to use any recipe you like for your Mission.
You might think that peanut butter is very old, but actually it was created in 1895 by Dr. John Harvey Kellogg, the creator of Kellogg’s cereal. Dr. Kellogg originally made peanut butter and marketed it as a healthy protein substitute for patients without teeth. In 1903, Dr. Ambrose Straub of St. Louis, Missouri patented the very first peanut-butter-making machine.
Your Mission is to make particular shapes out of your homemade peanut butter playdough. Below are 6 different shapes. Form your playdough into these shapes and then tell your partner what the name of the shape is. For those who do not wish to use peanut butter, substitute it with soy butter or sun butter. Good luck!
