Homemade Finger Paint For Babys &;Toddlers :)

If your looking for a fun sensory activity for your baby or toddler finger painting is a great one : ) It's really easy to make finger paint. You only need 4 ingredients and you probably already have them at home. If you want easy clean up you can let them paint in the tub that way when there done you just rinse them and the tub off ; )

Homemade Finger Paint
  •  2 cups flour
  •  4 cups cold water
  •  Food coloring
  •  A little salt
Mix together the flour and water in a pot. Cook over low heat make sure to constantly stir it or it will get lumpy. Continue heating the mixture till it becomes thick. Mix in a little salt and let cool. Pour into containers or cups and add in your desired colors. If you don't use all of the paint you can store it in a covered container in the fridge for future use.











My little guy had a blast playing with the paint :) At first he wasn't sure about it then he dug right in. The food coloring didn't stain his skin or highchair in case your wondering : )

  6. This is perfect! I've been looking for things to do with my finger licking toddler once his brother's go back to school. What's great about this is that it shouldn't attract ants! Love it!
