Make-Your-Own Fingerpaints...

Here's another great rainy day project...

Ages: Everyone will enjoy these paints, but they're aimed at Little Kid Scientists.  Even Very Little Kids can play with these paints, because if fingers go into mouths...it's just pudding!

Materials: large package of instant vanilla pudding, 2 cups ice water, food color, small plastic cups, freezer paper

Procedure:
  • Mix water and pudding together in a bowl, until well mixed
  • Refrigerate for 5 minutes
  • Divide the mixture into several small cups
  • Allow Kid Scientists to create their paint colors with food color drops
  • Paint
The Science Mommy likes to use freezer paper for fingerpainting because the glossy finish on the back prevents the paints from seeping through.  You are also able to pull off a much larger sheet for a bigger picture.
