My boys love making a mess, and getting creative. My 2yo is obsessed with painting, but even more obsessed with eating it! The amount he consumes during the painting of an A3 sheet of paper is crazy. This is why I decided to create an edible paint. I basically put food colouring into condensed milk. Then I went to a cheap supermarket to buy several white and neutral coloured foods, both sweet and savoury.
I brought white bread, meringue nests, prawn crackers, pink wafers, and custard cream biscuits. Popcorn would be a great one too but the shop had no stock.
I mixed the edible paint into a clean paint pallete.
The food and food colouring cost around £5.50 total from a cheap supermarket.
This activity is relatively mess free, and that’s a miracle in this house! We also coincided it with afternoon snack.
Here’s a few photos of our edible paint session:
Then my 3yo made a traffic light.
My boys were so excited that they could paint food and then still eat it!
I’d recommend this activity to everyone. It was cheap and very easy to do! Have a go and share your photos with me here on my Facebook page!
