Try Food Painting!

Any craft that involves both paint AND snacks is kid approved at our house! This fun frugal craft requires few supplies and minimal clean up… making it mother approved as well 🙂

Food Painting Gather


Gather any foods you’d like to paint. We used marshmallows, popcorn and bread. Make your edible paint by mixing milk with food coloring. I really like the McCormick Neon Food Colors, they’re nice and bright! For a thicker paint, try mixing sweetened condensed milk with food coloring. It dried really pretty and shiny!

Food Painting Marshmallows

Let kids be creative and paint away! It’s also a great opportunity to teach kids about colors and counting too!

Food Painting Done

The best part… it’s all completely edible when you’re done!

Have fun!
