Homemade Edible Finger Paint, The Scary Fish Song and A Masterpiece

You can hit the store and spend 7 to 8 dollars on finger paint OR you can make your own with what you have in your pantry for FREE. See where I am going with this?

The great thing about making your own paint, besides the $ you save is that you know exactly what is going into your child’s mouth. Oh your child doesn’t try to eat paint {yeah sure!} Well mine does and I don’t have to cringe as much as if she does it with store bought paint.

To make it is simple:

1 cup flour

1/2 cup sugar

1 tsp salt

1 cup cold water

1 cup hot water

* you can add more water if the consistency is too think or vice versa.

Mix together the dry ingredients.

Stir in cold water. Once it is mixed well, stir in the hot water.

Divide into separate containers and add a few drops of food coloring to each container. Use as much or as little food coloring to achieve your desired color.

Simple right?

The next thing I did was tape off Kaili’s name on a big piece of white paper, like this. I have a plan people!

She was SO eager to get started. I dribbled a little paint on the paper and she slowly got into it.

Once she was done, she wiped her hands on her face and in her hair. Sweeet!

Next up, a bath. I started singing a fish song to her and she CRIED what a little whimp..ha just kidding. So being the great mom I am, I sang it again for you. Here ya go!

Once her picture was dry, I peeled off the tape and here is what we have…

Pretty cute, am I right?
