These edible paints are great for toddlers and babies that are on solid foods. And they are SO simple to make at home. Super tasty and safe, read on to find out how to make this fun indoor sensory activity for you baby.

ย 

What you will need:

  • Plain yogurt
  • Food colouring of your choice. We had blue, red and yellow (mixed few colours to make secondary colours)

ย 

What to do:


1. Add some materials to go along with painting so that baby can explore other elements whilst painting. We used shapes and bubble wrap and picked some leaves.

ย 

Worried about the mess? We know messy art projects for babies arenโ€™t always the easiest, especially if you like having a clean house. If you want this to be a floor activity, itโ€™s always best to have wipeable floor mats.

ย 

Or if you do it on a high chair then the IKEA antilop highchair is VERY easy to clean. And just put towels on the floor if you donโ€™t have any mat. When little ones have some messy play at home its nice to strip them down to their nappies and let them get messy!

ย 

Note:ย As with all of our activities, we recommend full supervision because, as we know, little ones like to explore with all of their senses - including their mouths!

ย 

If your little one doesn't play as intended, don't worry. The most important thing is that they enjoy!ย
