Let baby paint and play freely using one of these taste-safe art recipes
Rosie and Jewel have loved painting since they were tiny babies.  When they were in the mouthing stage I would make a variety of taste-safe paints for them to create and explore with.  Below, you will find our favorite art and craft recipes for babies and toddlers.

Homemade Paint Recipes for Baby

Baby Finger Paint

Method
Light colored baby food purees work best for this.  We used jars of pureed banana and pear.
  • Open the jars.
  • Add 10-15 drops of food coloring to each jar and stir until combined.
  • Give it to baby on their highchair tray or on paper.
  • Paint brushes are fun and help build fine-motor skills, but they are not needed.  Often times little ones will choose to explore with their hands.

The food coloring produces super vibrant paint colors. Babies can also safely explore the paints with their mouths, which is perfect since they most definitely will!

To make bath paint taste-safe we used whipped cream in place of shaving cream.

Materials

  • You could also use a muffin tin.
  • Mix the food coloring into the whipped cream until fully saturated in color.
