Finger painting is a great way to get creative and get messy, two things that kids generally love. By making your own finger paints, rather than using regular paints, you can save money and make sure there aren't any toxic nasties getting all over your child's hands (and possibly their mouth). Take out the washing up liquid and this recipe won't taste nice, but it will be completely edible.
Adults will have to take over most of the preparing process, but slightly older kids can help with the measuring and stirring of ingredients. Kids under 5 won't be able to help, but they'll have lots of fun afterwards playing with the paint.
: 15 minutes (Plus hours of fun)
