This Kool-aid paint is very easy to make, and it is a fabulous finger paint for babies and toddlers.
Pop it in the freezer for 15 minutes before play to cool things down a bit this Summer.

  • Once the paint is well mixed use a wish to break up any clumps.

  • Then, divide your base finger paint into small bowls or cups.  You will want one cup for each paint color that you wish to make.

  • Next, it is time to add the kool-aid!  Have kids sprinkle kool-aid into each paint cup and mix until combined.

  • How much kool-aid you need will depend on how much paint is in each cup.  I used roughly 1/2 a packet for each paint color, and that was more than enough to give us super vibrant paints.

We love this paint recipe and use it often for play.  It has a thick, fun texture that tickles tiny fingertips.

My girls started off small, but it wasn't long before they took things up a notch.

They had so much fun & found all sorts of ways to play!  Since it was hot today we eventually decided to pop some of our Kool-aid paint into the freezer.  This was a simple way to cool things down on a hot day.

This paint is especially great for babies who are still in the mouthing stage, as it is edible and taste-safe.  We stored our left over paint in air-tight containers in the fridge.  I am not sure exactly how long it will keep for, but we used ours within the week, and it was totally fine.
