Cream Paint

as the name suggests, cream painting uses a medium of "cream". you can use cool whip, redi-whip, or homemade whipped cream (yum!), add a few drops of food coloring to a couple large spoonfuls, and mix.

your table should be covered with a towel or newspaper, this is a bit messy, although i have never had a problem with staining on any surface, clothing or kid part!

the coolest part about the paint is that you get to play around with textures! awesome waves, and swirls, chunky shapes and bumpy spots!

my kids favorite part is that it is ENTIRELY edible! so no worries if your toddler wants to shove it in her mouth, that's what it's for! you actually can make a non-edible version using shaving cream instead of the other "cream", but where's the fun in that? make this a two-part activity by teaching your kids how to make whipped cream first, then continue with the craft!
