When my son was younger, pudding paint was the best way to let him paint (one of his all-time favorite things to do!). With pudding paint, I didn't have to worry about him putting something harmful in his mouth.

Even as the years have passed, we still love making a batch of pudding paint together and then seeing what fun artwork we can come up with. Sometimes we even get to enjoy the leftover pudding together. A win-win for everyone!

How We Did It

Pudding Paint

Get together all your supplies.

Pudding Paint

To start making the pudding, add milk to a mixing bowl.

Pudding Paint

Add the pudding mix to the milk. We whisked the ingredients together (my son loves making pudding almost as much as he loves painting), then let the pudding set for a few minutes.

Now scoop out pudding into small cups. We divvied our pudding into four cups.

We left one cup plain, and added food coloring to the other three cups. (A different color per cup.)

Pudding Paint

I created a paint station (with the pudding paint, paintbrushes, a spoon, and card stock) and set it out.

My son had fun scooping out the pudding with the spoon and then painting on the card stock. I sat alongside my fellow pudding artist and worked on my own painting.

Here's my son's finished painting. While the painting was drying, we enjoyed a quick and tasty snack together. Can you guess what we ate?
