DIY Kids Body Paint
It’s known that toddlers love making a mess. It’s how they learn. I love watching my girls making a mess, I can see their little brain wheels spinning with delight as toys, food, water, pretty much anything goes flying in every direction. These two are all about a new adventure and experience and get into anything they can with a fierce passion. So when I saw this post on Modern Parent, Messy Kids blog, I knew this would be a perfect activity for my girls.
What you’ll need:
-a six muffin tin or something similar for the different colors.
-1 Inch Paint Brushes, I got these, they worked great and are easy to hold and clean.
I recommend you have:
-An outdoor space
I loosely followed this recipe from the blog post but left out the milk. Here is how I did it, step by step.
Step 1 – add two drops of gel food coloring to each muffin tin section. Mix colors for additional variations. Here is a color mixing guide if you aren’t sure what colors make what.
Step 2 – in a separate bowl mix corn starch and water until you get desired consistency about three cups total is needed for six colors, I used approx 1 1/4 cup of corn starch to 1 3/4 cup of water.
Step 3 – Pour the corn starch mixture in to each muffin tin section , fill about half way, mix together with food coloring.
Step 4 – Have Fun.
Step 5 – Hose your children down before bringing them in the house.
