SewFatty: DIY Edible Finger Paint

I am always trying to find way’s to entertain my little bam bam and munchkin. We don’t really have a nice grassy area to play in, due to our grass having those little spiky poky things. Do you know what i’m talking about? They stick to your clothes, skin pretty much anything. Well our entire yard has those, so we try to keep activities indoor or sometimes spend time at the playground on base. While checking my instagram application I seen my friend @fenderkatie had just done a DIY canvas with finger painting, I thought wow what a great idea! So you know I totally had to do it.

Here is what you’ll need:

  • white canvas
  • small containers to put the colors in (I used gerber food jars since I already had them)
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1/2  or 1/4 cup of cornstarch
  • 1 Tb. of sugar
  • food coloring


Combine water, cornstarch and sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and keep on stirring until mixture thickens. Pour into small containers and add your food coloring. Simple. (*let the paint cool off before giving it to your little one) Below you will see some pictures to give you an idea.DIYkidfun


The Masterpieces!!


Overall my little love’s had so much fun, little bam bam was just sticking his fingers in all the colors. Adryana mixed all the colors apparently and made herself she said. I totally love our new artwork. They are going up on the wall as soon as they dry. *Be sure you write on the back of the canvas with the date and age of your munchkins. Now go make some masterpieces with your little munchkins. It’s fun and also perfect for easter !!!
