Edible Finger Paint

Paint that is fun to create with and safe to eat! Make your own edible sugar finger paint. Mom will love an original painting using this homemade paint for Mother's Day. Our mixture can be put together for a quick play date or a rainy afternoon activity for good, clean (or messy!) fun - a great idea for kids any time of year.



  • 4 tablespoons Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
  • 1/3 cup corn starch
  • 2 cups water
  • green, red, and yellow food coloring


  1. Mix sugar, corn starch and water together in a saucepan.
  2. Stirring with a whisk, heat mixture over medium heat.  Once it begins to thicken, remove from heat. Add water if mixture is too thick.
  3. Divide paint mixture equally between four bowls and add four drops of food coloring to each.
  4. Store paint in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
