Fingerpaint for Kids – No Cooking Needed!
This fingerpaint is so easy to make as there’s no cooking involved at all!
This is quick to make and will keep the kids entertained for hours on a cold, rainy day. You probably already have the ingredients at home, too! This recipe is enough to fill one pouch, but you can easily double or triple it then divide into separate bowls at step three to add different colours.
Our handy reusable travel pouches are the perfect portable container for the paint and, as the paint is made using edible ingredients, the pouches can be washed out and used again, or recycled. The fingerpaint is completely non-toxic so if the kids end up licking their fingers they’re not going to get sick!

Let the kids have a ball!
Tip #1 – Use a funnel or a cut off soft-drink bottle as a funnel to pour the fingerpaint into the pouches. This helps keep it mess-free – at least until the kids get their hands on it!
Tip #2 – Get the kids to wear a smock or old clothes as the fingerpaint may stain.
Tip #3 – Refrigerate finger paint when not in use.
