Finger Paint Recipes (Even An Edible One)

Finger painting is something that my kids have always enjoyed. However, just like my play-doh post,finger paints don't last very long in a house with 3 kids. Colors get mixed and you'd be surprised how fast they run out. I've been looking for recipes that are easy to put together. I love the idea of homemade things, especially when it comes to my children, because I know exactly what goes in it. My youngest son will truly attempt to eat ANYTHING and EVERYTHING and at least with homemade finger paints I know there aren't any hidden toxins. Please enjoy these recipes. I hope you find them useful and feel free to pin them to Pinterest!
