Edible Finger Paint

Finger paint is always fun for toddlers. If your LO is in the phase where everything goes in the mouth this is the go to recipe πŸ‘πŸΌ and its so easy to make.. It does not stain clothes – washes off easily.. And also easy to clean from the carpet. Its a little thicker than the store bought one so its not great if you want to paint a picture but works well for finger painting.. Messy little hands but so much fun.. πŸ˜€

What you need

  • Cornflour – 1/2 cup or All purporse flour – 1 cup ( i used cornflour)
  • Sugar – 4tbsp
  • Salt – a pinch
  • Cold Water – 3 cups

How to

  • Mix the cornflour/ All purpose flour, salt and sugar in a saucepan.
  • Add water to it and mix well. Whisk until smooth.
  • In medium heat, keep stirring until the mixture is smooth & thick.(Note – the mixture will thicken more while you let it cool)
  • Now pour the mixture into plastic cups and add desired food coloring into each cup. ( I added approx. 10 drops of food color to each cup)
  • Let it cool before you start painting.

You can store it in plastic containers, baby food jars or squeeze bottles. Also the finger paint sheets from dollar store worked well for my LOs messy painting πŸ˜€

You can also let infants play with it – introducing sensory play. Just add some paint to a ziploc bag and tape the sides to the high chair so that it does not open. 🎯



Hi!! Im Lavanya, stay at home mom of 3 & 2 yr old girls.. My LOs are very active and they need various activities to keep them busy and interested. A monotonous play bores them easily.. Hence, I've started to explore & create activities to keep them occupied - fun & some learning.. This blog is my maiden attempt where you can find simple crafts and learning activities for kids. If you like my page share it with your friends. Also tell me what you think in the comments. πŸ˜€ Thanks for stopping by!!
