Pudding Fingerpainting! And More...

Finger painting with pudding combines the joy of painting with the fun of playing with your food! Just mix a package of instant pudding according to directions and then paint on paper, cookie sheets, wax paper, paper plates, or a washable table cloth. If you use vanilla pudding you can color it with some food coloring. You might want to dress the kids in old shirts as this activity tend to get rather messy!

Some other types of fingerpaint you may have around the house:
Kool-Aid Finger Paint
What you need:
-2 cups flour
-2 packs unsweetened Kool-Aid
-1/2 cup salt3 cups boiling water
-3T. oil
What to do:Mix wet into dry.

Jello Finger Paint
What you need:
-Any kind of flavored jello
-Boiling water
