Momma Jorje September 17, 2011 at 2:04 am I get nervous about them staining her hands terribly (not sure why, it doesn’t bother me for Easter). How about using flavored puddings? There are at least a few colors you could do that way. Or you could add a little beet juice for red… probably do a google search for “natural food dye.” Acacia Moore September 17, 2011 at 9:56 pm I should have included something on natural food coloring. You could try creating your own food dyes like adding turmeric (for yellow) or beet juice (for purple) to the pudding but there are also several brands that you can purchase online. India Tree Naturals is well known and popular, but it’s pricey. Chefmaster (bkcompany.com) and Chocolate Craft Colors (chocolatecraftkits.com) also offer natural food coloring.

Claire lactatinggirl September 25, 2011 at 12:39 pm One of the ways that we like to “paint” without a lot of mess is taking coffee filters and letting her color on them with markers, then she gets to paint with water and the markers spread around.
