We know, we know – we’re not supposed to play with our food.

But let’s make an exception for this edible paint.

Yes, paint you can eat. It’s a real thing that’s great for keeping kids busy on the weekends – and, besides, it’s super easy to make.

You only need two ingredients, some mixing power, and that’s it. Finished.

I did this with my son over the weekend and it was amazing – he finished with finger paints so it was super easy to rinse off.

The great thing about this is that if younger children decide to lick their painting or lick their fingers (as they often do), the paint is completely edible.

Less mess and a great way to do some coloring when you don’t have good paint on hand – hooray.

Finished? Let’s go to the recipe.

Ingredients:

  • Any yogurt (I use Greek because it’s a lot thicker)
  • Natural food coloring in whatever shades you want

Method:

  • Start by putting a few tablespoons in each part of a palette, or in separate jars
  • Add a few drops of food coloring and mix well
  • Paint away – and eat if you like!
