Homemade Edible Paint Recipe
To make edible paint, you will need:
2 cups of Greek yogurt (full fat), divided into 4 parts
To make this awesome and simple edible paint for kids, split the Greek yogurt into four 1/2-cup dollops on trays or bowls. Add drops of different natural food coloring to each dollop and mis well with the spoons. Make the colors as light or as bright as you want them to be. That’s it! Your edible paint is ready to be used! It will taste great, but if you want, you can add a drop of lego essential oil or lavender. One drop will do for the entire 2 cups of Greek yogurt.
We invited our little toddler neighbor to come play with our homemade edible paint. He used the snowman, the star and the gingerbread man marshmallows to dip in the edible paint and stamp his construction paper. He liked to create his own art, too.
This really is one of the most fun edible paint for toddlers that we’ve used so far. It didn’t take him long to figure out that he could eat both the paint (yogurt) and the stamps (marshmallows)!
Once we were done, we left some marshmallows on the construction paper and let it dry for a few hours. The marshmallows stuck to the construction paper and the kids had a beautiful and creative work of art.
