In our last post, we shared some of our favorite recipes for homemade dough. The ingredients are usually available in your pantry and how easy it is to whip up these homemade dough. It’s definitely economically cheaper, takes a couple of minutes if you already have the ingredients at hand and best of all, it’s non-toxic.

In today’s post, we want to share with you homemade paint recipes that you can easily make as well. We have done ice painting in our art in the park with toddlers and that was a hit as well as marbling using shaving foam at our toddler workshop at the museum. These are very sensory activities for babies and toddlers and making them is pretty much fuss free.
