I love edible finger paint. What’s not to love? Your toddler gets to be creative, explore through their senses and you don’t have to worry about them tasting it. It’s the best of both worlds. It is also a great activity for fostering creativity!
We have made a few other edible paint recipes like this great greek yogurt finger paint. We especially love the greek yogurt recipe but I thought why not sweeten it up a bit? Enter the Pudding Paint.
-Promotes creativity and exploration
-Builds fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination
-Promotes learning through the senses including touch, taste, sight, and smell
Prepare the pudding per the directions
When ready, divide the pudding equally into 4 containers (or how ever many colors you want)
Add the food coloring and stir!
EASY as that!
I laid out the paint and some extra tools that I thought she could use.
She used the pipe cleaner to dip in the paint
She started out with the pom pom by dipping them in the paint before she decided it was more fun to put them in her mouth. I had to watch her very carefully and I think we will be saving pom pom fun for the future!
She was having a blast painting and TASTING
The pudding makes a very nice smooth texture that I am sure feels great.
The end result-I think more ended up in her mouth than on the paper!
- Put on some play clothes that you don’t care about getting dirty
-Use a mess mat ( I use a dollar store plastic shower curtain)
-Do right before bath time!
