Whether you have colourful paints or felt tip pens, wear a painting t-shirt and let your child get messy.  Edible paints are fun and easy to make at home too.  To make a flour-based edible paint:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups water
  • food colouring


  • Heat the water and salt on a medium heat and slowly whisk in the flour until the mixture thickens.  If you split the mixture into several containers, you can add a different colour to each.  The mixture may have more of a liquid base than non-edible paint, also cover it to stop it from drying out. 

Let them enjoy the texture and feel of the paint, using their fingers or even their toes.  Use a range of tools at hand to you: sponges, rollers and brushes.
