That food coloring is now sitting on my shelf, unused, after its long trip around the globe, because we no longer intentionally consume food coloring.
So, what do you do with a bunch of food coloring when you won't eat it in your food?
Paint with it, of course.
Yes, I know this is controversial to suggest, because your skin also absorbs toxins through your pores, and these go directly into your blood stream without needing to go through your digestive system... and many people won't put anything on their body that they won't put into their mouth... and I try to do that for the most part, but... yea, I guess I'm being hypocritical for not using shampoo for this reason but have no problem having my kids paint with something I won't let them eat...
But either way, here's how to make your own homemade finger paint recipe using just a few basic ingredients. If you don't want to use chemicals, a chemical free variation is written below.
