Recipe: Homemade Paint

I made a batch of homemade paint this week, which proved to be just as much of a hit with the toddler as it was with the teenager!


1 cup water

1 cup plain flour

1 cup salt

Queen food colouring


  1. Mix all ingredients together.
  2. This makes a fairly thick paste like paint, you can add extra water to smooth it out if you prefer.

As it is fairly harmless paint, it can be used on pretty much anything and it will still wash off.
