One of my favorite things to do with my children are art projects! I have been searching for a paint that would be safe for my 11 month old to use (since everything goes in her mouth)! I have finally found a recipe that I love to create homemade, baby-safe finger paints!

This recipe also only requires 3 ingredients! What?! I know! It’s super easy to make! You can use this recipe with children of all ages as well!

How To Make Homemade, Baby-Safe Finger Paints

Now it’s time to make some homemade, baby-safe finger paints!

  • In your large bowl, pour in flour and water.
  • Using your whisk, mix flour and water together until you get the consistency you would like. (I mixed until my solution was smooth with no lumps)
  • Now it is time to separate your mixture into different containers (this will depend on how many different colors you are making).
  • Now it’s time to add your food coloring!
  • Time to test it out and have your little one start to paint!
