edible finger paint {kids and art}

Finger paint…

Definitely… make it yourself.

a little bit of flour

a little bit of water (just enough to make a paste)

a couple drops of food coloring

Definitely… let them paint in just a diaper… or a bathing suit… or something.

Definitely… do this on a tile flour… or outside… or in the tub!?

Definitely… use more paper than I did.

Definitely do NOT… leave stray finger paint on the floor for an extended period of time. Unless you want to get on your hands and knees and scrape and scrub your kitchen floor… (mine needed it anyway, what with how many flying pickles and blueberries were staining the floor already)

Definitely… join in!

Definitely… just let them paint on their bellies (I’ll be the first to admit that I painted on his belly first :) hehe)

Definitely… enjoy the mess. Encourage the mess. Art is messy! I am slowly becoming convinced that having children is designed to make mamas like myself learn that the house doesn’t really have to be that clean.

  1. I can handle everything but the eating of the paint. That’s giving me a case of the howlers right now. But it looks like he had fun and that’s what’s important.
