Easy to Make Homemade Paint

My girls these days are all about the crafts, and this now leaves my mind racing with new ways to keep them entertained so that I have a few minutes to sit down and drink my coffee before it gets cold.

This morning we decided to create our own paint. This was a double win because not only were they able to help out in the kitchen making it, they also spent the next 43 minutes painting pictures…then another 32 minutes painting each other….then another 27 minutes in the bath taking it all off.

So here is one of the easiest paint recipes to keep your toddlers busy until it is time for a bath.

Step 1- Mix together equal parts

  • Flour
  • Water
  • Salt

Step 2- Add a few drops of food colouring and mix together.

Step 3-Let your kids paint away while you drink your coffee and congratulate yourself for being an awesome mom.

After thoughts on making this craft.

This is a great craft for young kids, however we found that it was a little tough for the kids to use their brushes and create the pictures that they wanted. This would be an ideal finger-paint for kids just starting to discover new textures or to use with larger brushes as an outdoor sidewalk paint.
