We are always looking for easy kids craft activities and painting on food has been one of the most fun ideas yet!
Do you ever have one of those days when you read about a creative craft idea and you had to do it right away? Katherine inspired me so much with her popcorn painting and beautiful photos, that 15 minutes after I read her post, our kid snacks were ready to be painted!
Edible Paint Craft Activity for Kids
This edible paint is made with milk and neon food coloring. You can also use sweet evaporated milk, but that was not to be found in my pantry, so regular milk it was!
Pour milk or sweet evaporated milk into a cup or muffin tin, then add one drop of food coloring. You could also use fruit juices if you don’t like food coloring. I found some all natural organic food coloring with bright colors that I hear has no after taste.
I thought painting marshmallows would make it an even sweeter craft activity:-)
My daughter had a blast. You know it’s serious stuff when you stick your tongue out while painting!
Forget Easter eggs, we’re painting marshmallows!
My attempt at painting her face. It was hysterical to her, but even more fun to eat!
Pull out the food coloring or fruit juice and try it. Your kids will love it!
