Remember when Mom told us to stop playing with our food? Scratch that!
First on my list is Edible Organic Finger Paints…
I went to the craft store and found a six foot long roll of white foam. I decided this would be a better canvas than paper because we can wash off and reuse the foam sheets. Also, since our young artist is still crawling, I knew she would have a blast if we just sat her in the center of the action on the floor.
I popped into Whole Foods and picked up some organic and colorful fruits and veggies. Think sweet potatoes, spinach, squash, apples, string beans, or carrots. I roasted the sweet potatoes before blending them into a puree by simply adding water.
Our little one was a little apprehensive after I poured the paint out in front of her. She looked up at me with a mild suspicion, but once I slapped my hand into the center of the mess she happily joined in the fun.
We had a royal good time talking about the shapes, letters, and numbers we drew in the rich orange paint. I am excited to experiment with more colors as we start to introduce even more yummy fruits and vegetables!
