Painting with edible finger paint: MESSY PLAY ACTIVITY

September 5, 2016

Sunday is a perfect day to try out fun activities at home and when you are a Parent to a Toddler- You constantly have to search for the activities which keeps them busy.

Do you want your Kid to enjoy painting? Who does not but safety always comes first.

Having an oral sensory seeker in the house who puts everything in mouth, makes me more reluctant to try something non-edible.

Finger paints are among the easiest arts and crafts for young children. All you need is the paint and a canvas – be it a plate, paper, cookie sheet or tabletop.

I searched for some edible finger paint recipes and found this one, the simplest-


Kitchen items which can be found in every home, such as flour and corn starch can create fun time for the Kids.

K is almost 2 years old and I really want to start getting him more involved in the activities to help support his development as he grows.

    I tried edible paint with my son when he was anout 9 months old, it was hilarious. now he’s 14 months and a bit more mobile maybe I should try it again. It does look like loads of fun! like the sound of sunday funday! #mg

    • Ya, you should definitely try it now. Its a perfect age. 🙂
      Thanks for your appreciation Karen.

  • Fantastic idea, Upasna. We used to use whole wheat dough in place of playdoh and my son loved to paint with chocolate! 🙂 You are a wonderful Mother!

    • Dough must be fun to play with but I am reluctant because he like its taste and gulp it raw. Paint with chocolate..WOW a natural , tasty and edible paint. Thanks Mam.

  • Atulmaharaj

    I had no idea that something like that existed too !? So that’s informative for me. Good read.

    • He He…Even I did not before I became a Mother. I think we Adults should also engage in some Messy play – may be friendly paint-balls.

  • Shalini

    Honestly, I know many would scream their lungs out if they find their kid in such a state 🙂
    You are an amazing Mom. 🙂

    • You are right- In my childhood, I observed many Mothers yelling at their Kids(our friends) when their clothes got smeared with dirt and stains. All I want is to let him enjoy his golden days.
