Painting With Edible Paint

We tried this paint on various mediums but found that it works best on fabric.

You can also grab a canvas, but if you want something that you can wash and re-use, then an old sheet is the way to go.

After painting, we washed the sheet, and it was ready to use again the next day.

If the kids don’t use all of the paint on the first day, cover your jars with plastic wrap and put them into the refrigerator. You can use it again the next day too.

Edible Food Paint

The best part of this paint is it doesn’t require icing or drops of food coloring or gel food coloring or any liquid food coloring. So there is no staining the skin.

And it tastes better than most corn starch paints. And the best part is, it can double as a sensory activity.

Homemade paint is such a fun idea. You get to make the paint and then the fun part, finger painting.
