Here’s a super simple recipe for a homemade “paint.”
What you need:
- Plain Yogurt (Greek yogurt has a good, thick consistency for this activity.)
- Food Coloring
- Canvas (Your child’s high chair tray or a piece of wax paper both make great canvases.)
Adjust the amount of food coloring to achieve your desired colors. Then let your kids play! Show them how to mix colors and create new designs.
Store any leftovers in the refrigerator and remember to discard it according to the date that coincides to what is on the yogurt container.
Also, it’s important to note that this recipe will not create any artwork that can be saved. It’s designed to be a safe, sensory experience for an hour or so before you clean up.
