Tasty Tuesday - Yogurt Finger Paints

This is more of a fun activity but it's still edible!

Instead of using finger paints for the real little ones - like my son for instance, who is only 14 months old... use plain or vanilla yogurt with food coloring.  The high chair tray can be the canvas and when they are done, let them lick their fingers clean... or give them a spoon to practice self feeding with utensils.

My son loves finger painting with water!  It is too cute.  He loves finding a drop of water on his high chair tray (that has dripped from his straw or sippy cup) and then uses his fingers in the water to 'paint' the tray.  We haven't tried it with yogurt yet, but I am sure he will love that just as much!  If I was home with him instead of at work... we'd be trying it today - but maybe this weekend instead.

Do you let your kids finger paint?  Do you use real kid-friendly finger paints or something else?
