Games for 1 - 2yrs Painting fun!
From one year onwards your toddler can start working on his/her artistic talents!
You can make a simple paint solution as follows:
Mix cornflower with some food colouring and water – you will have to experiment to get the consistency and colour intensity right – remember start with small amounts you can always add more.
You can make it into a paste then give him/her a old wooden spoon to paint with. He/she will enjoy painting patterns on old newspaper.
The beauty of this type of paint is that it is washable, and completely non-toxic so you don’t have to worry if painted fingers end up in mouths!
If you make the mixture slightly runnier you can use it as a finger paint. Or else try the following recipe:
- ½ cup of instant cold water starch
- ½ cup of soap flake (NB must be the flakes!)
- 2/3 cup of water
- some food colouring.
- Mix it all together, adding more water if necessary.
