So lately I have been on a quest to figure out things for my preschooler to enjoy that are toddler friendly so I can include Little Dragon (age 1) in our activities. That means no choking hazards or inedible stuff. I am guessing a lot of moms are on the same search. We have used this edible paint recipe a lot and love it because it is super fast to make, taste safe, and makes what we are eating a work of art. So it’s time we make our paint official with its own special post to share with you because I am sure you and your kid’s will love it just as much as we do!
The colors show up nice and bright and the cool thing is the paint even dries so you can eat your edible art project without getting sticky. We have painted jello, fondant, and marshmallows. It can even work on paper (although I don’t recommend eating paper even if it tastes sweet and looks pretty :). Here is how to make it:

Sweetened condensed milk
1. Mix 1 tbs. sweetened condensed milk with 1-2 drops of food coloring and stir until well blended.
Now you are ready to paint, it’s as simple as that. The sweetened condensed milk takes food coloring really well so you don’t need to use a lot.
