Finger-Lickin' Good Paint

One of my go-to activities for my girls on days when they are restless and I don't have the energy to get on the floor and play with them is edible fingerpainting.  This is an easy project.

1.  Whip up a batch of vanilla instant pudding and divide into a few smaller bowls
2.  Add a couple drops of food coloring to each bowl and mix until evenly distributed
3.  Let the fingerpainting begin!

I just strap my kids into their booster seats and put a dollop of each color on their trays and let them have fun smearing it all over their tray.  If you use paper, the pudding will dry like fingerpaint.  This is a great activity for teaching colors and what happens when you mix them.
