Edible Finger Paint

I wanted to try painting with Sophie but everything ends up in her mouth so I had a go at making some edible finger paint.

What you need: 


  • Approximately 7tbs of cornflour
  • Cold water
  • Hot water
  • Food colouring
  1. Put the cornflour into a bowl and mix in some cold water to make a paste.
  2. Add some boiling water to thicken the mixture.
  3. Divide the mixture equally and add food colouring.

Sophie enjoyed tipping the tray and rubbing her hands in the finger paint. We got into a right mess, used a whole bag of wipes and both needed outfit changes by the end but it was fun! Next time, I would set this up in a builders tray and have a bath ready!
