For Valentines, I friend and I got together and helped our little guys make some adorable artwork (check out our adventures here!). The crafts were fun, but the one thing the boys kept wanting to do was put their paint covered fingers in their mouths. We moms had to spend the whole time watching out for their paint-eating tendencies.
I determined to figure out an edible finger paint recipe before we crafted with the little dudes again. I tried several from Pinterest, but I haven’t been impressed with their consistency – many are clumpy or too thick. The yogurt paints work nicely, but they don’t dry, so you can’t keep your kiddo’s art work.
Anyway, I played around during naptime and came up with this recipe. It’s the perfect consistency (just like real paint!) and takes color really well. It dries in about a half and hour and stays vibrant, making it perfect for kiddie projects. Watch out Saint Patrick’s Day! We’re gonna paint something green!
