Pudding Finger Paint

We did this earlier today, and my daughter loved it!! Make some pudding that is fairly light colored. We used Banana Cream, because that's what I had in my cupboard. My daugher helped me mix it up, then we added food coloring, and viola! Edible finger paint! Lay out some waxed paper (I used baking liner) or a cookie sheet or even a place mat, and you have a great canvas. Then, let them have at it! For some added fun, throw in a basting brush! (Be sure to have your child wear a bib or apron!) This is also a great way for toddlers to learn about colors.

My mom used to make edible playdough -- it was peanut butter, honey, and dry milk, I think, you'd have to ask her -- but it was along the same lines. Lots of fun to build things and play with, then you could eat them.
