If you want to do finger painting with your kids, but worry about them getting the paint in their mouths, this is a great activity to try. Even my 9 month old had a turn at this, and loved it! We made our own finger paint using Jell-O and a little warm water. Mix the package of Jell-O with just enough water to make a finger paint consistency. Use water color paper, or other thick paper to paint.
Warning: This activity is extremely messy, or should I say STICKY! It is best done outdoors, or at the very least you will want lots of wet paper towels handy. However, it is a LOT of fun for the kiddos, and well worth the mess!
