My Life of Travels and Adventures: Edible Finger Paint

Edible Finger Paint

25 July 2013

I have a toddler.  A toddler who tries to eat everything.  For example, the door jam on the way into the kitchen.  

For my Mom's birthday last month, I wanted Reid to finger paint/draw on white paper for the wrapping paper.... Then I thought about it.  He eats crayons. He would eat the finger paint.  


Edible Finger Paint. 


Pudding Mix
Food Coloring

To keep it simple, I only made 3 colors.  Okay, all our food coloring leaked into a plastic bag when we moved last month, so we only had 3 colors. 
I set Reid up, sans clothing at the table, taped down the paper and poured some yellow pudding onto the paper.  
You know what that little stinker did, painted with it.  Not once did he try to eat it.  
I moved him around the table and hoped for the best with the green. 
Needless to say... my kids must eat all things green!
One he started tasting it, there was no stopping him. 
It was a little messy...
...but then again it was only pudding so the dogs cleaned up any drips. 

Reid had so much fun painting and Grandma really appreciated her one of a kind wrapping paper. 
Once we were done it was straight into the bath tub for Reid!

Been up to anything messy this summer?

  1. Oh, Lord! I think that mess would be enough to cause me to have a mental break down! :) A couple summers ago, I gave each kid a bottle of shaving cream and let them loose in the back yard.... that was good fun for them, and then I just hosed them down afterwards!

    Stopping by from Jenna's Commenting Challenge!

  2. The kid has good taste - green is clearly the best color! Heh!

  3. I love it but what kind Food Coloring you used because colors came out very pale when I used natural.

  5. Fun but this is the last thing I'd give any kid that comes to my house only because they can't behave with stuff like this & I refuse to clean the mess they'd make. Great idea though, kudos to you :)

  6. My kiddos love to paint! I love the fact that this is edible! Do you know if it is washable too? Would the food coloring stain clothes?



  7. Good idea with the pudding paint! I made edible paint a few months ago using corn starch and it worked well, but I'm sure not as a tasty!! :)

  8. I love this idea, I also made paint a while ago and while it wouldn't hurt you it wouldn't taste this good either!

  9. Fun fun idea! thanks for sharing

  10. BRILLIANT! I'm going to have to try this with my Munchkin. She too likes to eat everything:)
