Doodle paint is super fun for kids, and it couldn't be easier to make!  You only need 2 ingredients, both of which you likely have on hand. 

My kids call this "drawing dough" because it is so easy to draw with, yet it is thicker than paint.  Sounds pretty cool, right?
Are you ready to give it a try?

Doodle Paint Recipe

Materials
Note:  You can mix this paint up right inside of individual glue bottles.  However, if you buy your glue in bulk like we do then you will need to pour the glue into squirt bottles like these.

Method
  • Begin by filling squirt bottles with white school glue, leaving a few inches from the top.
  • Add several drops of food coloring to each bottle, and then use a butter knife or stir stick to mix the food colors into the bottles of glue.

  • Once the glue and food colors are well mixed secure the lids, and then give the bottles a good shake.
  • Play can now begin!

Doodle Painting for Kids

As easy as this paint is to make it could not be more fun!  Kids LOVE squeezing the bottles, which is great for fine-motor development.

The thick consistency of the paint allows for kids to easily doodle and make designs.

The paint also dries puffy and raised, which is really neat!

A Few Tips:
  • We save a lot of money by buying our glue in bulk.
  • If using bulk glue you may need squirt bottles like these.
  • You can also buy 3-packs of school glue at the Dollar Tree.  
  • Why not buy two 3-packs and make six paint colors already in their own squeeze bottle?
  • No matter what bottles you use all you have to do is add the color & mix!
  • Happy playing!
