Create Your Own Homemade Paint

Making your own homemade paint with kids is a fun and rewarding experience that makes a great rainy day activity.

This recipe is simple, non-toxic, edible and it costs next to nothing to make.


  • Sweetened condensed milk
  • Food colouring
  • Paper
  • Paint brushes or fingers!

The Method

  • Add 3-4 tablespoons of condensed milk to a small bowl or container.
  • Add 2-3 drops of food colouring to the condensed milk and stir well until the colour is combined with the condensed milk and looks like paint. Once you have the decided shades, the paint is ready to go!

This is a messy and sticky activity, however, it cleans up easily and does not stain, but don't say we didn't warn you about the mess!
