Homemade Paint for Kids

by Thrifty Sue 556 views1

I ran across this idea on Facebook and had to immediately share it with you all. I absolutely LOVE the idea of this. Here is the recipe to make homemade paint for your kids, and a picture included to show how they are using what looks like Ketchup/ Mustard type of bottles, pretty genius if you ask me.


Recipe for Homemade Kids Paint

  • 1 cup or 240 mL of salt
  • 1 cup or 240 mL of flour
  • 1 cup or 240 mL of water
  • food coloring (for the colors)

That’s it! Super easy and super cheap too! Simply mix all the ingredients together place the mixture (before food coloring) into the appropriate containers, add in the food coloring and ta da! You now have paint.


Happy Painting everyone! Let me know how it works, and share up some of your kids art pictures using this paint on our Facebook page, I’d love to see their master pieces! I’ll try making this and write up a follow up post with some of my kids art work as well.
