Here is an easy way to make edible finger paint using only one ingredient you likely have in your pantry.
Hot Chocolate Finger Paint
Edible Finger Paint Ingredients
- Hot chocolate packets or cocoa powder
- Warm water
Add a little warm water to the chocolate powder in a bowl and mix it together really well. You only want to use a tiny bit of water, or it will get too runny. I used too much water at first, so I added a little more chocolate powder. The paint had a fantastic texture, as it was just slight gritty, making for even more of a sensory experience.
Once Rosie had covered her paper in the finger paint she discovered that she could make lines in the paint to create a new piece of art.
Jewel LOVED playing in the finger paint. She spread it as far and wide as she could
Both girls also enjoyed tasting a bit here and there. The yummy paint was definitely a special treat for them.
Once Rosie tired of finger painting, I gave her a couple of her foam alphabet stampers to extend the activity. We talked about the letters as she stamped them., which was a simple activity for reinforcing her knowledge of the alphabet.
Both girls had fun finger painting together
This was quite a tasty art experience that was all about the process. Once the girls were done playing, clean up was fairly easy. I had covered the play space with butcher paper and when they were done I just rolled the paper up and threw it away.
