I had been wanting to fingerpaint for a long time, but with a child under 2, it just wasn't safe for him. I knew he would eat it. So, we made homemade finger paint instead. We made vanilla pudding and added food coloring to it. It was so much fun, and when he got some in his mouth, I didn't worry at all!
I used a family size box of pudding, but had WAY too much left over. What you see in the bowls is only half of the pudding that box made. So, if you only have a few kids doing this, make a small box. Use as much food coloring as you like. I didn't color the yellow because I thought the pudding was yellow enough, but it didn't really show up on the paper, so I would still put in yellow.
