OK a bit messy, but lots of fun! Make your own edible finger paint for the kids. Its cheap to make and safe to use and if theres any left over, store it in the fridge or freezer to use for another day.
Young children love to paint and draw, build and sculpt and when they present us with their artworks its easy to tell them that theyve done a great job - whatever the results! However with a few open-ended questions you can find out a little more about what theyve produced and what inspired them. Youll also help develop their creative and critical thinking skills in the process.
