Homemade Fall Finger Paints Craft - Scented, Edible & Safe - Vanilla, Cinnamon, Brown Sugar



Fall is in full swing at our house! Between decorating, baking, and crafts we are trying to keep busy with Fall activities - even though it feels like Summer outside! 

Our Fall Front Door Decor

Yesterday we had a lazy afternoon and Little J seemed to be in the mood for a fun activity. So, I whipped up quick and easy finger paints that were also safe incase he decided to eat them...which inevitably, like most things these days, he did. 

I drew a tree on the paper he was painting on to try to attempt to have him make a Fall tree...which wasn't such a success, but he had a fun time painting nevertheless :)


Recipe for the paint: 

Brown Sugar
Equal parts of flour, brown sugar, and cream of tartar
sprinkle in a little bit of nutmeg 
a few drops of red food coloring
add water to desired consistency

Cinnamon 
Equal parts of flour and cream of tartar
a few drops of red food and yellow coloring
sprinkle in approx.1tsp cinnamon 

add water to desired consistency

Vanilla
Equal parts of flour and cream of tartar 
a few drops of yellow food coloring
add in a few drops of vanilla extract
add water to desired consistency






Masterpiece! 


As always thanks for reading! :)
