Edible Homemade Finger Paint
This homemade finger paint can be made with food-grade ingredients you probably have in your fridge and pantry right now! See the notes section for an alternative recipe.
Spice Options for Yellow
- Use turmeric for the most intense color, but be sure to cover your work surface because it stains. It will also tint little hands slightly but fade pretty quickly. (Ironically, it stains skin but whitens teeth. True story.) Ground mustard can be used to create a light yellow.
Spice Options for Red or Pink
Alternative Recipe Using Natural Food Dye
- 1/4 cup yogurt
- natural food coloring - add as much as desired (I use this brand)
- A smidge of light-colored honey (Optional. Use if you want your kids to enjoy taste testing as they go)
Add drops of food coloring until the paint reaches the color intensity that you prefer. Stir in optional honey to taste if desired.
