Gotta love me some Pinterest.
I found this recipe for edible homemade finger paint on there the other day–mostly I was attracted to the fact that it had like 3 ingredients, all of which I had in my cupboard. I am a true cheapo at heart.

I have to say, the paint ended up being a little more than a colored flour paste, but it did the trick for entertaining them on a rainy morning, so I would recommend it. Plus, it was fun to dare them to eat it (they couldn’t bring themselves to do it. Wimps.) In fact, my girls even chose to opt out of the finger part of the fingerpaint and went with the brush method instead. If you could see the messes they can whip up with glitter pens, this would surprise you.
