An easy peasy SQUEEZY paint recipe using ingredients from your kitchen

One of the good things about this squeezy bottle paint activity is there might not be as much mess as there is with fingerpainting. But don't hold us to that.

Let's face it, there's going to be mess, but we still love the recipe anyway. Partly because it can be made using ingredients from your kitchen, but mostly because it might give you a small window of peace. Again, don't hold us to that.

Here's how to make it...

What you need:

  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1 cup of salt
  • 1 cup of water
  • Liquid watercolour or food colouring
  • Squeezy bottles
  • Zip lock bags

What you need to do:

  1. Blend flour with salt, then add water and mix until smooth.
  2. Divide it up into three zip lock bags, then add a few drops of liquid watercolour or food colouring to each bag.
  3. Squish them up until the mixture (soon-to-be paint) is well blended.
  4. Add more water if you’d like a thinner paint.
  5. Cut a corner off the bag and squeeze the paint mixture into your squeezy bottle.

If you like the idea of squeezy painting but want to get out of the house, there are activities like this taking part at The Ark this week, as part of their summer programme Colour.
