DIY: Edible Finger Paint

  • Posted by: Altreneasha Ashley

As always, I’m trying to find different ways to allow baby girl to explore. Today we painted !!!! 

Edible finger paint was super easy! Literally all you need is: 

  • Plain white yogurt
  • Food coloring 
  • Containers and spoons (for mixing) 
  • Plastic covering for a mess (trash bag, shower curtain, etc)


I wanted my clean up to be super simple so I I used to-go dessert containers for my bowl. I put a half cup of yogurt in each container and three drops of food color.

Then mixed it in. Pow! Now you have edible finger paint. ????
 We “painted” outside on a trash bag. She had a blast!!!! I think #YogurtWasted is appropriate here lol

What I would do differently: 

  1. Use a larger piece of plastic 
  2. Tape the plastic to the next surface 
  3. Do much smaller quantities and let her play in her high chair lol — much less work
