Yummy Finger Painting

Yummy Finger Painting

Let your child finger paint with instant pudding. Prepare according to package directions and allow it to cool. Place a small amount on wax paper or a baking sheet. Wash hands so your child can taste as they play. Finger painting with pudding is a great sensory experience. Remember to tell your child this artwork cannot be saved. This is all about the process or experience, not the product. Try chocolate, vanilla or pistachio and have fun together. Capture the memories with your camera and afterwards enjoy a tasty treat that was not used for painting.
