This edible finger paint is a great DIY for parents looking to get their young children interested in painting. The paint is made from natural ingredients with a high pigment payoff making this finger paint yummy and safe.

Mommies and daddies will love blogger Anna’s solution to babies and young children licking their fingers while painting. This finger paint is kid-friendly and super safe because it is made specifically with edible ingredients such as corn starch, water and edible food coloring. The trick is to boil the corn starch and the water together, until it forms a thick, creamy consistency—like paint. Then, you can split the mixture into different jars and add food coloring to create different colors. Children will love how the edible finger paint’s consistency remains opaque on paper and tastes good in their mouths if they happen to try some along the way.
