DIY Paint: A rainy day calls for a crafty day! That is just what my daughter and I did today. We made DIY paint! (Do it yourself-paint) It was super simple and fun to use. Best part is that is uses ingredients right from your kitchen. So this DIY paint is safe, that mean non-toxic-which is good if you have little ones that like to put things in their mouths. Although I don’t recommend eating it-as it’s really salty!
Supply & Ingredient List:
1 Package of food coloring
2 C flour
2 C salt
4.5 C cold water
Squeeze bottles, number depends on how many colors you want.
A few mixing bowls and spoons for each color.
Mix flour, salt, and cold water together in large mixing bowl. Mix until it is a consistency of paint. Once it is ready, pour into smaller bowls. Put food coloring in each bowl, mix. Pour each color into it’s own squeeze bottle.
Then PAINT! We found that it is way more fun drawing with the paint bottle, but you can squirt and use a paint brush too! Here is some of our lovely artwork.:
