Finger paints

Finger paints are easy to find in a lot of shops now days. However here is a recipe for making your own at home:

What  you need

2 cups white flour
2 cups cold water
food colouring

Step 1. Pour the water into a large bowl. 
Step 2. Slowly add the flour, while the children are stirring. 
Step 3. Once it’s all mixed together, divide into smaller bowls and add the food colouring.


Make sure your little one has their clothes covered up or strip them down to their nappy, no less stress about mess the more fun the activity will be. Place the paints in easy accessible bowls or trays to help your child/ren choose  which colours they want to use.
