Corinne loves to scribble, but she also loves to eat crayons. 🙁 She loves to paint, but she also loves to eat paint. Also, 🙁 . Corinne is still at an age where she puts everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, into her mouth. So, having her sit down for art-time can be somewhat of a challenge. My solution? Edible finger paint. Click here for my other edible finger paint recipe.
The recipe is as follows:Edible Finger Paint (for each color) 2 Tbs. corn starch 4 Tbs. water food coloring as desired Combine and mix well.
Because this edible paint is made up of cornstarch, it will require remixing during the painting process. But, as you can see below why it was important to be that the paint be not just non-toxic, but truly edible.
