As some of you know I have struggled with trying to include Ava (9 months) in a lot of the projects that I do with Mack (3 years old). She likes to participate in everything we do and I love watching her explore her little world…however that usually means allowing her to put whatever it is that she is exploring in her mouth! I have experimented with some homemade paint, we usually use pudding paint, however today I thought we would give flour paint a try! I liked the way this came out and it was a little thicker than the pudding paint and had kind of a pasty consistency so I’m hoping it doesn’t peel off of our projects the way that pudding paint does over time. Pudding paint does however have the upper hand when it comes to taste!
This recipe is SUPER simple, all you need is:
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup water
How easy is that?? If you have an older child this is great because they can do the measuring, mixing etc. themselves….which we all know children love to do. Mack loves anything that he can do “all by myself”.
