Edible Painting with Straws is Fun, Sensory Activity for Toddlers
Toddlers love to play with straws. One of the first milestones is learning to drink out of a straw. Blowing through a straw if also a fun, sensory experience for toddlers. This activity uses both. It is fun to watch them practice. Grab a cottonball to teach them to blow through the straw and then mix up some edible paint to make these cool, colorful blot pictures.
|Our paint isn't just edible; it is yummy too!|
|Neon food color, maple syrup, milk, and cornstarch. Mix in three equal parts syrup, milk, and starch. Add one or two drops of color.|
|Little ones learn to blow thru the straw vs. sucking ~ not as easy as it seems.|
|It makes great finger-paint too.|
