Today I am delighted to have Kristin from Homespun With Love guest posting. If you like budget friendly recipes, craft and decorating ideas, and all around great tips, you are going to want to pay her a visit. Today she is sharing a fun activity for making some colorful Toddler Pudding Finger Paint. This is a terrific sensory experience for little ones and you won't even mind if they get some paint in their mouth!
This has been on our, "to get to" list for a little while, and when Vicky asked if we would like to do a guest post on her wonderful blog, after we regained our composure, we knew this was the perfect opportunity to mark this one off our list!
Not only did this activity turn out to be a great toddler learning through play experience, it also made for keeping little hands busy indoors since it was a cold rainy day outdoors!
Mix up your pudding according to the package directions.
Next, fill your muffin tin cavities 1/2 full with pudding. Add food coloring and mix well. We found that some of the colors did not stay true due to the fact the pudding is a little yellow. It just made the colors more interesting.
Either use the pudding once it is mixed with the food coloring, or cover and store in refrigerator until ready to use.
Now on to the busy little artists!
Away they go mixing and watching the colors change. Time to get a feel of the paint on little fingers.
Just wondering what color to use next.
If you have toddlers and need a activity for either indoors or outdoors to keep them learning through play, give toddler pudding finger paint a try. Be inspired, get creative!
Thank you Vicky for having us on Mess For Less!!!
Thank you Kristin! I love this idea for the finger paint. For one, it is much cheaper to make this than buy finger paint, and it is perfect for little ones who love to put everything in their mouths. Here are some of my favorite posts from Homespun With Love. Be sure to visit and say hi to Kristin!
