I came across this recipe on how to make finger paints that is food based and safe for kids. As many of the store-bought paints are lead based and are not safe for kids in the long run, I choose to make my own finger paints. This homemade finger paint recipe is very simple and inexpensive. Refer to the picture above for the recipe.
My thoughts: You might find your paint thickens a bit more over time. Simply add a little water to thin (or add corn starch to thicken). Paint containers are baby food jars. I hope your kids will enjoy some finger paint fun with these colorful homemade paints!
Paint keeps for about one week.
