DIY Yummy Edible Paints!

I remember making this as kids with my Mum – I have lots of fond memories fighting with my brother to ‘finish’ the paint hehehe.

I found a tin of Condensed Milk in the cupboard and thought it would also be a fun activity for my toddler who usually likes to ‘taste’ everything…surprisingly he did not lick his fingers once…unlike his big sister who recognised the tin and yelled “Cheesecake!!”!

You will need:

Condensed Milk

Food Colouring

It’s pretty simple – just pour the Condensed Milk into small containers (an ice cube tray works great too) and mix in some food colouring using a toothpick.

My 5yo Daughter and I painted some Marshmallows while my toddler had fun painting on some paper…we placed our completed marshmallows in the fridge to set overnight.

Love the look of concentration on Miss M's face!

  4. I absolutely LOVE your site. There is just one problem. How does anyone decide which thing to do first. My grandson will go crazy with excitement when I show him this site. THANK YOU SOO MUCH

    1. Hi Julie, it sets firm when refrigerated but it will return to a thick liquid if left out too long…well that’s what ours did :). Louise x

  5. If you paint a picture with this paint, does it mould after a while? Just wondering because of the sugar content of the milk. Thanks for all your great ideas, love them all!

  6. I am a grandmother and love to make thins. Thank you for the ideas. Unfortunately my grand children
