Homemade non-toxic fingerpaint for kids

Homemade non-toxic fingerpaint for kids

Fingerpainting is a great activity for toddlers. Follow this recipe to make your own version with ingredients you already have at home. It’s totally edible (though not that delicious) and completely non-toxic. And the best part is : it’s easy to make and will last!

  • A bowl or small container for the paint.
  • A cup (to serve as a measuring jug).

  • Hot water.

Then, add three or four cups of hot water (not boiling) until you have a supple texture, not too liquid. It will not have the same consistency of store-bought paint, and will have a gel-like feel that will increase as it cools down. Wait for the paint to cool down completely before giving it to children.
