1.) Vanishing Kook-Aid Paint
All you need:
a few packs of different flavor kool-aids to get the various colors and water.
Prepare a few small bowls or something to contain the paint (I used my empty Greek yogurt containers).
Empty each pack of kool-aid into different bowls.
Add enough water just until it becomes a little liquifies.
Mix well. Provide construction paper and paint brushes. Let the kids to paint.
The paint vanishes (well not totally but you get the idea).
2). Condensed Milk Paint
This one is quite sticky and should be thrown out when the kids are done. Otherwise, you may have some hungry little ants building their homes in your home.
1 can sweetened condensed milk
Empty one can nestle milk into 4 little bowls.
Add desired food coloring.
3). Flour Paint
flour & water
food coloring, for colored paint
Gather a few small bowls – I used empty yogurt containers. Add about 1 TBSP flour to each bowl.
Add enough water and mix well to get a paint consistency (about 1 tsp to each).
Add food coloring and stir well. Looks just like real paint.
Now it is time to paint. Present paint brushes and construction to the kids and let them express their inner art.
Below is what it looks like when dried.
4). Finger Paint
This one is not really homemade. I bought from the $$$ Tree. It says for children 4 and up. I let my younger toddler use it with supervision. I got them because I liked the little tubs they came in. I figured once the paint is gone, I can wash them and use to store our homemade paints.
The kids can use their fingers or paint brushes.
