Painted childhood masterpieces are so classic to see. I love seeing the unique designs and awesome color combinations that result from a child’s exploration of color on a (hopefully) designated surface. Practice fine motor skills with these creative *taste-safe* recipes. All ingredients can be found in your kitchen, or at least in the grocery store. These paint recipes are the solution to taste curious kids and babies that enjoy eating their play things.
There is a whole lot of variation in these recipes. Have fun trying the different textures on different mediums, throw in some small sensory objects like beans and seeds for the older kids, and enjoy the color combining!
