I cut some potatoes in half and used the knife to cut out some simple shapes - a cross, a circle, some lines and a letter C.
We made our own homemade paint, using flour, water and food colouring. It was fun!
Homemade Paint Recipe:
- 2 cups of plain flour, sifted
- 2 cups of cold water
Stir together flour and water until smooth, split into separate bowls, then add food colouring.

|Split the mixture into bowls, add food colouring, and voila! Homemade paint!|
|Get some small plates, put some kitchen paper roll down to act as the paint pad. Pour on the paint.|
|Use slightly thicker paper than normal, slip on the painting smocks, then let the painting fun begin!|
|Boys decide quickly to ditch potatoes in favour of finger painting! (something they've never been allowed to do by their slightly mess conscious mother!).|
|A great success :)|
