Edible finger paint for babies
It is super simple – just pour some shaken sweetened condensed milk in small bowls. Add food coloring (I used my Wilton decorating colors because that is what we had on hand). One can will give you 4 small bowls. We used 2 cans partly because we had two cans laying around and partly because I think big & was imagining all the fun colors to paint with =-)

How to make edible finger paint
My baby enjoyed mixing the colors with her fingers best of all.
The colors were so beautiful all mixed together!
Then my baby discovered the edible part – and it tasted pretty good too =-)
I LOVE this season of life when I have little kiddos at home! Their sweet smiles, laughter, curiosity, endless cuddles, and even the messes (mostly!). I am truly blessed!
