My toddler is obsessed with putting everything in her mouth. I mean EVERYTHING (yep, that’s dirt)! We got a few pumpkin for the kids this year and thought it would be fun to paint them together. But, toddlers are crazy! What’s a mama to do?! I went on Pinterest for ideas of course! While browsing Pinterest I came across a recipe for homemade paint and just had to try it.
Kids Crafts: Homemade Paint For Babies
I just love Pinterest! It’s my go-to place when I’m bored, or when I need meals and craft inspirations. This homemade paint recipe is so simple to make, and I bet you already have all the ingredients in your home.
To make the paint
1/2 cup of flour
Half a cup of salt
1/2 cup of water
Food coloring (Amazon link)
Mix the flour, salt, and water together. Then separate the mixture into however many paint colors you wish to make (I used plastic shot glass but feel free to use anything). Then add a tiny bit of food coloring in your separated mixture.
You can make the paint as dark as you wish (by adding more food coloring), or as light as you want (by adding less food coloring). Now, your toddler can paint away, and you don’t have to worry about if they get a some in their mouth.
Fun fact: Once the paint is dry, it sparkles! How cool is that!?
I love to hear from you! Do you search Pinterest craft inspirations like I do?
