Fun with Homemade Paint


Today, we had so much fun making and using paint! It was so simple, inexpensive, and super fun to make. The kids had a blast making and mixing paint and had even more fun painting. Luckily for me, it was a beautiful day out so the boys could paint outside. 
We made 4 batches, each one was a different color and split into two containers. 

All you need is: 
1 Cup flour
1 Cup Salt
1 Cup Water
Food coloring
Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl or container.
Add enough food coloring to achieve the color desired.
Have fun!!!
They started with paint brushes....

But quickly switched to using their hands!

 Things progressively got messier and messier! LOL
 They really had a blast!
BONUS!!!  The paint did wash completely out of their clothes!


  1. This looks really easy to do and fun for the kids!! I'll have to try it :) I'll have to set up an outdoor area like you did so cleanup is easier LOL! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. It was so much fun, they were so happy! I definitely would recommend doing it outside!
