Now that November is here in NE Ohio, I have to get creative to keep the kids from going crazy indoors. If for no other reason that when they go crazy, I go crazy. That's just too much crazy!
This finger paint has more of a jelly-like consistency, but still serves it's purpose. Plus it's easy to make & completely edible should little ones choose to try it out. I'm just not certain how good it actually tastes, but my youngest didn't say "Eww!" when she tried it. Of course she didn't try it again after that, LOL!

* Go easy on the food coloring, a little goes a long way
** Because of the food coloring, do be careful with clothing & other surfaces since there may be some slight staining.
