This little process art activity is so much fun; we just had to share it!
It's an easy-peasy, fun art project you can put together in no time. You don't need any fancy materials either.  It's totally budget-friendly!

Kids can be part of the whole process. They can play, enjoy, and taste their creation, which is always a plus when dealing with little ones!

What we loved about this edible art activity it's that it allows kids to create freely. There are no rules, patterns, or designs to follow. It's just a fun art process where kids can have fun and let their creativity shine. 

It wonderful to see all the creative designs little ones can come up with when they're simply having a good time!

Add 1 to 2 drops of your food coloring into each container. Then, using a spoon, stir the mix until the cool whip is completely coloured.

How to make edible paint

Remember to use a spoon for each cup. We don't want the colors mixing! Set the containers aside.
