  • Once smooth divide your base finger paint into small bowls or cups.  You will want to use 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 powder into each paint cup and mix until combined.
  • I used roughly 1/2 a packet of Kool-aid for each paint color, and that was more than enough to give us super vibrant colors.

Tips & Storage:
  • Store leftover paint in air-tight containers in the fridge, and it can be used for up to 1 week.
  • Kool-aid can be bought in a variety of colors and flavors on Amazon here.
  • Kool-aid can stain.  I recommend having children wear a smock or play clothing during this activity.
