Another kid concoction!

Since we've missed 3 days of preschool, plus a field trip due to our flu... it was about time for mom to get creative! Allison still doesn't know the term "bored," but she uses that voice to ask, "What should we do?" So, I decided to pull out our "Kid Concoction" book I got at the MOPS convention. (See "Fun Family Day" entry) I was in luck... I had all the ingredients for the first entry she pointed to! We were going to do edible finger paint!! It started off simple...

...Then I told Allison to try some...

Then it was all over... literally!

From that moment on, I couldn't get Allison to take her hand out of her mouth. It got so bad that we ended up throwing them both in the bath with their clothes on!!

I both date and make comments on each page as we try new experiments. For this one... "Kids love it. very simple, but very messy. Do outside without shirts on!"

Here is the simple recipe:

  • 1 box instant vanilla pudding
  • 2 cups cold water
  • food coloring

Mix the pudding and water, then refrigerate for 5 minutes. Pour mixture into muffin tins and add food coloring.

Great idea. I have to try it and I need to get that book.

Sounds fun! I'm with you on the mess. My two look like that after watercolors - which to my knowledge are not edible! Great resource. Hope everyone's on the mend!

Oooo, that looks like fun! We just might have to try that. Maybe while Nana is here to help clean up.... ;)
